StepAfrika is Magnificent!

I had the opportunity to attend a performance of StepAfrika at the Atlas theatre in NE DC. If you ever have the opportunity to go – absolutely go see this show. As a part of a prestigious African American Greek Letter organization, I learned so very much. I had no idea that the tradition of stepping was so deeply rooted in black heritage, culture and such a big part of the black experience.

The most powerful part of the show to me was “they took our drums away.” That phrase has stuck in my head the past few days and will be there well into the future I’m sure.
