The College will celebrate Black History Month with a performance by Rochester-based Pan-African performing group Mounafanyi Percussion and Dance Ensemble.

It is part of the College’s “History, Culture and Diversity” series organized by Robert Brown, professor of history. It is being held in partnership with the Student Corporation and the student group AALANA, which stands for African American, Latino, Asian and Native American.

The Mounafanyi Percussion and Dance Ensemble features musicians and dancers from Guinea, Ghana, the Congo, the Ivory Coast, and the United States. Their performances weave drumming sequences – including West Africa’s djembe hand drum – with high-energy dance.
