Stories of Color: Music, Song, and Stories from the African Diaspora
Join us on an adventure exploring folktales from Africa to West Virginia. Using music, song, and movement, our Teaching Artist will lead participants in the retelling of three folktales: John Henry, Abiyoyo, and Anansi the Spider.
Then sit back and watch Anansi and Sister Mud Turtle come to life in a shadow puppet show accompanied by Nigerian drumming and narration. You'll finish your African experience by making your own very own Anansi puppet!
Please support the Center by purchasing a ticket for everyone in your household who'll be enjoying this presentation. The total amount you choose to pay allows us to continue to create and share all our programming with you.
