Black History Month

I meant to post this at the end of February but somehow the weeks have slipped away. And then I saw this post from this Bermuda blogger and thought I just had to post this, as late as it may be. His view is that Black History Month is irrelevant in Bermuda, which I thought very interesting. Perhaps it's in the little communities that it's more prevalent. Here are some of my favourite Bermudians decked out in their native African wear to celebrate Black History Month. A performance on some genuine African drums, brought all the way from a certain tribe in Africa was also accompanied by a celebratory luncheon.
















Some African vignettes...












And a video of the African Drums (you know I've got a video...)

Amazingly I know ALL of the people that are in the pictures, and likely the drummers too... hard to tell though (looks like Kevin on the left at least)

Slowhand: Yes, that is Kevin on the left, and unfortunately I don't remember the other two gentlemen's names. And of course, you would know the others pictured here. :o)
