WASHINGTON - Feb. 21, 2018 - PRLog -- One of the largest gatherings of Black artists and creatives in the Washington DC Metro Area is celebrating its five-year anniversary.  Nubian Hueman Boutique Lounge hosts The Black Love Experience, an annual event that blends art, music, shopping, food, live entertainment and thought-provoking, interactive sessions.   The Black Love Experience takes place on March 17th from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. at Nubian Hueman Boutique Lounge located at 1231 Good Hope Road S.E. inside the Anacostia Art Center.

This year's theme reflects the black excellence through sound, art, and commerce. Bringing together the best of DC's creative community, attendees of The Black Love Experience will encounter diverse forms of creativity and expressions from the African diaspora, including:

• DJ Underdog (OkayAfrica and Afropunk) and DJ RBI
• Farafina Kan, traditional African drumming and dancing performing arts company
• Tabi Bonney, Togo born, DC-based rapper
• Aaron Abernathy, pianist, soul singer and multi-talented entertainer
• Sa-Roc, DC born, Atlanta based hip hop artist
• Jabari Exum, DC born, African percussionist and consultant on Marvel's® Black Panther movie

Last year's Black Love Experience sold out, so the organizers have since expanded the space to include the Honfleur Gallery and The Hive.  A portion of ticket sales will benefit a local organization or program.

"This anniversary is significant not only as a business owner, but also as member of the Anacostia community," said Founder Anika Hobbs. "Nubian Hueman was one of the first businesses to open in the Anacostia Arts Center, and it continues to serve as a model and example of a sustainable business East of the River while building the global creative economy for people of color. And as woman business owner, I am proud that we are celebrating our 5-year anniversary during Women's History Month."
