The MOJA Arts Festival: a Celebration of African-American and Caribbean Art is the City of Charleston’s multi-disciplinary festival, which celebrates the rich heritage of African-American and Caribbean cultures. MOJA, a Swahili word meaning “one,” is the appropriate name for this celebration of harmony among people. Offering theatre, dance, music, visual arts, films and lectures, the MOJA Arts Festival is produced and directed by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs and the all-volunteer MOJA Planning Committee.
