The RHYTHM of the event will come from the live music, dancing and drumming from Global Education Center's adult Afro Latin dance group, Nyama followed by our Roots, Rhythm & Rhyme Youth Performance Troupe that is comprised of children who benefit from our Roots, Rhythm & Rhyme Youth Programming.
The ROOTS of the event will come from our diversity in audience, in presenters and in the many cultures that we celebrate everyday at Global Education Center.
The emcee for the night will be past board president and community leader, Marcus Whitney. Marcus has trusted Global Education Center with his time and leadership, but more importantly, he has trusted us with his children, who participated in countless Global Education Center programs, especially our Roots, Rhythm & Rhyme Youth Programming.
Join us for a night of coming together in community and support of the Global Education Center!
