An assortment of items for sale, dancers wearing colorful costumes and traditional African music greeted visitors to the African Marketplace.

The event took place Saturday in the Chestnut Room of Kilcawley Center as part of Youngstown State University’s annual celebration of African-American History Month.

Vendors offered items such as jewelry, purses, artwork and clothing.

“I’m here to celebrate Black History Month,” said Jacqueline Capron of Youngstown. “I usually come every year. I think it’s a wonderful occasion. I think black history should be celebrated every day of the year.”

She typically finds something to purchase.

She also enjoys the dancing and music of the Harambee Youth Group of Youngstown.

JoAnne Wight of Youngstown also attends annually.
