Milwaukee Summer wrap up activities

Following a successful two day run of African World Festival, the All White Affair was held at the Summerfest grounds. The AWF fundraiser is normally held prior to the festival, but organizers changed it up this year, allowing for extended use of the grounds and allowing for more people to attend. Last year it was held prior to the festival at Discovery World. (Photos by Robert A. Bell)
