The African American Day Parade, Inc. (AADP) is gearing up for registration for the 53rd annual African American Day Parade.

This year’s parade is themed “Good Health is Essential,” as AADP honors those and their contributions in the health field. This year’s parade will take place Sunday, Sept. 18 on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard. The parade has been virtual for the past two years but AADP says it’s taking all safety precautions as well as monitoring NYC’s COVID 19 guidelines and restrictions.

The parade will honor three to four health officials as grand marshals. In addition, three leaders will be honored as marshals and an additional two will be honored as the 2022 recipients of AADP’s Theresa Freeman Community Service Award.
