The Vibrant Health Association (VHA) utilizes the arts and cultural entertainment to highlight the vibrant & healthy origins of African Americans. Through music, dance, poetry, film, art, animatronics and live performances, we focus on the foundational past of a people who have lived four hundred years unaware of their own history and identity. Our focus is to foster and support the African American Community by addressing the whole person, expressing their humanity and self-understanding. VHA promotes whole health through public education exhibits, events and on-going programs. Our focus is to foster and support the African American Community by addressing the whole person, in every aspect of our humanity: self-understanding, mental, spiritual, emotional and physical health.
Events that make the ancient history of African Americans come to LIFE! Come to our festivals, performances and programs to learn in an interactive, immersive and EXCITING way!

Vibrant Health is a non-profit organization that in 2012 began giving free shows and exhibits at schools, churches, festivals, conference centers and other non-profit organizations to educate the public on the foundational identity of African Americans.
We’ve hosted music challenges for singers and musicians and promoted these talented performers in our events. We’ve conducted Poetry Slam contests for young women aged 25 and under; we published 10 of those poets in a book entitled “Black Butterfly International Anthology (subtitle: Young Women Who Rise in the Face of Adversity)”. We offer African dance classes for women and girls. We provide African drumming classes for men and boys. We host reading circles and Gullah basket weaving demonstrations for our seniors. We host cultural events including live music and dancers and plays to connect with African roots.
See our website about the new, upcoming Before Slavery Immersive Experience! It will be a tour that you will cherish for a lifetime!
