Video of the Day: Afro-Pakistani community

During the month of February and in the honor  of #Blackhistorymonth, we will bring you stories and images from the Black/African communities around the world… Our first video is from the Afro-Pakistani community as they hold one of their sacred festival.

Once a year the Sheedi community — a brotherhood of Pakistanis of African descent — gather at the shrine of Mangho Pir in Karachi to hold a sacred festival. While the historic rituals have survived through several centuries, the community leaders are concerned about the high levels of poverty faced by the Sheedi today.
