Join us on an adventure exploring folktales from the African diaspora. Using music, song, and movement, our Teaching Artist will lead participants in the retelling of two folktales: The First Music and Abiyoyo.

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!‚Äč
