#STUDENTSTOUMOJA
This year’s production will be Celebrating the 100th Birthday of Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela’s commitment to social justice has made society a much better place. As we celebrate his life and legacy, we want to remember and honor his many sacrifices. Our kids deserve as many opportunities as possible to gain knowledge on how important and influential Mandela is to South African history.
Africa Umoja! The Spirit of Unity- the tale of South Africa, its people and their song. A joyous and explosive celebration of South African culture and music with sensational voices and energetic dancing. Africa Umoja features the music from several legendary South African musicians. From the dusty streets of Soweto to the world’s biggest stages, Umoja tells the tales of the South African Experience through the riveting musical stage play showcasing its authentic South African Cast. This art and cultural showcase features beautifully designed South African costumes, award winning & internationally acclaimed choreography and exceptional music.
Africa Umoja is used to showcase and promote the cultural contributions of South Africa. Provide cultural education to students and families and to promote foreign studies. This production will be used to foster and strengthen bilateral conversations and agreements between foreign countries utilizing art and culture as convener. In addition we will attempt to promote and increase cultural tourism to South Africa by USA citizens. As well as work to provide an international gateway for North American companies and brands.
