We are excited to present our Second Annual Sankofa series which will take place throughout this autumn 2021! As part of these events between September and November, our crowning jewel includes Voices of the Ancestors, a musical performance with handmade life sized puppets and masks, crafts, and healing ceremony for the waters on OCTOBER 2nd at Kingston Point Beach. (Rain date Oct 3rd)
Honoring the voices of the ancestors: How the Gourds Got Their Voices is a life-affirming story written and told by Caru Thompson and brought to life with the visionary puppets of Rosendale’s Redwing Blackbird Theater and our community. Members of Good Gourd, a local singing and percussion group celebrating African-American heritage and culture, will also be an essential part of the ceremony.
