KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - It's festival season in West Michigan and, Sunday, people gathered in Kalamazoo to celebrate African-American art and culture.

It was for the Black Arts Festival in Bronson Park in downtown Kalamazoo. The festival's goal is to develop human potential, self-esteem and creativity among African-Americans in the Kalamazoo area.

Yolanda Lavender, executive director of the Black Arts Culture Center, says "My expectations for this festival have definitely been exceeded. I'm a native of Kalamazoo, so I remember attending this festival with my family as a little girl. This was the thing to do as a teenager."

There was a free gospel concert in the park. Christian dancers and musicians wrapped up the festival Sunday afternoon.
