Dear Beautiful Kings and Queens,
We are back with Black School's Annual Dinner in collaboration with Mbombo Restaurant and we are so happy to observe its relevance in 2020. As the diaspora is evolving as a collective, we want to nurture that evolution within our children's mindset as they seek their own answers based on our footprints. On Saturday, February 29, 2020, our immersive dinner will celebrate "Creative Activism" through the legendary story of Fela Kuti, the king of AfroBeat. Part of Broadway's cast including the actor currently playing Fela, himself will be part of the performance. Be prepared to see a story taking place in the '60s where the diaspora was one. From Nigeria to America, Fela showcases the power of owning our voice for the sake of many once we tap into our own creative gifts. If your kid has not joined Black School this month, do not worry: they can contact us to get prepared for this beautiful and mesmerizing dinner full of surprise sceneries and delicious food. Are you ready?
-Ms. Queenie Johnson (Founder of Black School) & Gladys Nyoth ( Executive Chef of Mbombo)
