There are a number of events this weekend that deserve the DCentric Picks treatment, so we’re highlighting three in equal measure for this installment:

  • This month’s installment of Sulu DC features an all-female lineup of Asian-American and Pacific Islander hip-hop artists. The shows takes place at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at U Street Music Hall (1115 U Street, NW). Advance tickets cost $10 and $15 at the door.
  • The second annual DC African Festival takes place from noon to 6 p.m., Saturday at the Takoma Recreation Center (300 Van Buren Street, NW). Food vendors, fashion shows, drum circles and a blogger exhibition will all be a part of the city-sponsored event.

Looking for an event that relates to race or class in D.C.? DCentric will be regularly posting event listings we believe will be of interest to our readers.  If you have an event you think we should feature, email dcentric@wamu.org.
