Join our vibrant community by attending A Taste of African Heritage classes near you! Browse the directory below (listed in alphabetical order by state and then by city), and then contact the instructor in order to register for a class. We are continually updating our class offerings, so please check back if there is nothing near you at the moment. 

If you’d like your community to host or participate in A Taste of African Heritage, feel free to contact Johnisha Levi so we’ll be aware of your interest. Or consider teaching a class yourself! We are always looking for passionate, new instructors, so we invite you to become a certified ATOAH volunteer teacher.
