"How Kids Live In West Africa" - For All Ages!
Phil Passantino, Musician & Storyteller, recently traveled to the West African country of Mali. He'll show his short film of how children live there. They're just like American kids in so many ways. And you have never seen bigger smiles! Participants will get to play some unique African instruments, hear fun West African folk tales, and see a more positive image of Africa than is usually portrayed in the media.
