"The Sound of Skin" African Drum Class and Lecture
Location: Arthur Zankel Music Center: 215
Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
This senior capstone presentation explores the relationship between racial identity and African drumming. The event includes two sections: a brief (10-15 minute) lecture on my research and findings followed by an hourlong African drumming class taught by local artist Wayne White. The class will be fun, energetic, and tailored to all skill levels. Through this presentation and drum class, I hope to demonstrate how the arts, specifically drumming, can be used as a medium to foster cross cultural and cross-racial dialogue and understanding. Instruments will be provided, and the event is free.
