It's all about culture, celebration, and togetherness!

At Indy Black Professionals, we recognize the importance of creating a community that celebrates diversity and promotes inclusion. Afro Ball was created to serve as a unifying platform for Africans in the diaspora, Black Americans, and allies, highlighting the richness and beauty of African arts, culture, fashion, and cuisine, while providing opportunities for networking, learning, and engagement. 

Join us in celebrating the vibrancy of our community and the incredible contributions of African culture and heritage to our society.
