Myers Students Celebrate Black History Month with Emi lfe Performing Arts Collective

Myers Black History Month

The Emi Ife Performing Arts Collective came to Myers on Friday, February 10, 2017 to demonstrate African Dance as well as educate students on the role of African drums. Boys and girls learned how drums are made and where in Africa some of the clothing worn by the performers originates. The entire school learned three dances that went with an unforgettable drum beat. Thanks to the Myers PTO for funding this Cultural Proficiency Initiative.
