Peace Party: A Funky Holiday Celebration – RSVP on Facebook!!


On December 11, 2010, the National Museum of African Art will present a family-friendly afternoon performance to share in solidarity with South Africa’s Day of Reconciliation. The program is curated by Simone Jacobson and highlights three DC-based artists who recently returned from a trip to South Africa and one local youth organization, Taratibu, a young people’s performing arts company that focuses on African and African American culture.

To celebrate the holiday season in the U.S. and the Day of Reconciliation in South Africa, the Museum will bring together these Bloombars and youth artists to share their rich experiences abroad with the public.
