Berkeley High School African American Studies Department Presents:

The Story of Kumba: The Orphaned Child

A West African legend. Once upon a time, in the kingdom of the great Mali
Empire, a man of royalty, who was blessed with a beautiful daughter, Kumba,
lost his kind and gentle wife.  By African tradition, he remarried and not
only gained a wife, but another daughter, Penda, who was quite spoiled and
disrespectful.  For a while, the new wife was good, but then she began to
be very demanding and domineering to her husband and Kumba, but nice to
Penda. If this reminds you of the story of Cinderella, you are good.

In this dance/drama, one will be able to see the Haitian dance of the dead,
Ms. Betti’s Aztec dancer’s, Sabar dance from Senegal, Macru and Kassa from
Guinea, Ms. Carr’s modern dance, hip hop, a narration that takes you on the
journey of being in the story, and more.

Audiences are thrilled and inspired by these young performers. Come see 250
students in the 2000 seat Berkeley Community Theater.
