What the organiser of the festival, Susan Tatah, had to say about the Afrika Festival Tübingen:

“The fear of people meeting is very present because of COVID-19 which has changed the way people interact. However the Afrika Festival Tübingen aims to help people overcome such fear by bringing the spirit of Africa and togetherness.

“The festival is a family festival and this is also very evident in the cost of the ticket which goes for 5 euros only! This is meant to encourage all to come and enjoy this event meant to empower all Africans young, old, women, men and children, across the board from Germany to the African continent!”
