New African Cultural Business Set to Open in Quincy Square

Bwembya’s Market, a new black-owned business in Quincy Square, is set to showcase the art of talented Zambian artists. The grand opening is scheduled for April 11th at 10 a.m. Ashley Engle reports from the neighborhood, highlighting the couple’s mission to support Zambian artists and their passion for art.

Kena Bwembya and her husband Charles are excited to launch their market in Quincy Square, where they will feature a variety of items imported from Zambia, such as jewelry and kitchenware. However, their main focus is on showcasing Zambian art created by local artists. The couple hopes to provide neighbors with a hands-on experience of African culture and bridge the gap between different cultures through authentic crafts.

According to Surface, a significant portion of Africa’s cultural heritage is held outside the continent. Bwembya’s Market will serve as a platform for sharing and preserving this rich cultural heritage while also supporting local artists and businesses. By displaying unique pieces of art, they aim to create a sense of connection among people from different backgrounds.

The grand opening of Bwembya’s Market promises to be a cultural celebration that brings together the community and highlights the beauty and diversity of Zambia. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore this unique business endeavor and learn more about African culture right in your own community!
