Northrop and Ordway Present – Student Matinee: Step Afrika! Drumfolk (Livestream)
October 12 - October 20
In 1739, Africans enslaved in South Carolina used their drums to start a revolt—a little-known event that forever transformed African American life and culture. When the Stono Rebellion cost Africans the right to use their drums, the beats found their way into the body of the people—the Drumfolk. This led to some of our country’s most distinct traditions like the ring shout, tap, and stepping. Step Afrika!’s highly interactive and energetic performances for students are both educational and unforgettable!
