Bridging the Gap: Bringing Zambian Art to Quincy with Bwembya’s Market

Quincy Welcoming a New Business Infusing African Culture into the Local Scene

Charles, a native of Zambia, has launched Bwembya’s Market in the Quincy neighborhood. The market will showcase art created by local artists and feature items such as jewelry and kitchenware from his homeland.

The couple’s primary focus is on displaying Zambian art to educate their neighbors about the rich culture and heritage of Africa. With the rise of social media and online content, many people have limited exposure to different countries and cultures beyond what they see online. By offering a hands-on experience, Bwembya’s Market aims to bridge the gap between continents and bring a piece of Zambia to their local community.

According to Surface, a significant percentage of Africa’s cultural heritage is held outside the continent. Bwembya’s Market is one of the places working to change that narrative by sharing and preserving Zambia’s rich cultural history. The market’s grand opening on April 11th promises to be an exciting opportunity for the community to explore and connect with the diverse artistry and craftsmanship from Zambia.
