New African Cultural Business Set to Open in Quincy Square

Kena Bwembya and her husband Charles are excited to launch their new business, Bwembya’s Market in the Quincy Square. The grand opening is scheduled for April 11th at 10 a.m., and they are inviting everyone to come and see what they have to offer.

The couple is passionate about art and has always appreciated its beauty. They want to share this passion with others by showcasing a variety of items imported from Zambia, such as jewelry and kitchenware. However, their main focus is on showcasing Zambian art created by local artists.

Bwembya’s Market will provide neighbors with a hands-on experience of African culture, allowing them to see and feel the beauty of Zambia right in their own community. By displaying authentic Zambian crafts, they aim to bridge the gap between different cultures and create a sense of connection.

According to Surface, a significant portion of Africa’s cultural heritage is held outside the continent. Bwembya’s Market will serve as a platform for sharing and preserving this rich cultural heritage, while also supporting local artists and businesses.

Ashley Engle reports from the Quincy neighborhood, highlighting this new black-owned business and their mission to support Zambian artists. She talks about how Kena and Charles are excited to bring a piece of Africa right into the heart of Boston through their unique marketplace.
