This workshop focuses on the significant role black dolls have played in the movement of Black self-pride.  The movement for Black self-pride was largely inspired by the human drive for freedom. The many stories of activists who promoted this new Black consciousness after Reconstruction are critical pieces of the history of the movement. This workshop features the struggle for self-determined self-imagery by black activists in American society and explores much about who these historical heroes were and how they saw societal mobility as a means for asserting their individual freedom.

African Dance with Chefi:

Let’s Move …away from the screen and participate in an energetic moment through some popular fun African dance. These dances are from the Ivory Coast, Congo, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, and Angola. Students will be shown the region where each move originated from on a map and greeted and taught how to greet in a native language of the dance move performed or taught. Students will continue to participate through call and response. Most of all, students will dance! Students will learn the importance of the use of some of their body parts in African dance and see demonstrations of basic movements which they will then take part in, all together as a group.
