Africans in the Snow

A performance inspired by Africa and hosted by Ms. Kenna at Patrick’s Cabaret in Minneapolis. This independently produced show featured spoken word, live music, dance and more, with a focus on the African diaspora. The theme “Africans in the Snow” comes from poem by Louis Alehemayu, who was inspired by a photograph of two Somali women in a snowy Minneapolis parking lot.
