The Rhythms of Black History Month
This year the Annenberg Center, the University
Museum and the rest of Penn's campus are making the most of all 28
days in February to celebrate Black History Month, as can be seen in Almanac's
Penn calendar. Some highlights:

Cameron (left in top photo) and Pianist John Adractas render Spirituals
and Art Songs, music by African-American composers, at the Annenberg
Center's Harold Prince Theatre February 13, 8 p.m.
Annenberg Center also brings Namu Lwanga & Kayaga, Ugandan
performers, February 19, 20 and 22. Namu of Uganda (pictured

She is also the artistic director of Kayaga, who through music, dance and
storytelling journey to Eastern and Central Africa for a look at the diversity
of tribal customs and dance. For times and ticket orders, call 898-6791.
