The United Women’s East African Support Team (UWEAST), in partnership with the Southern Sudanese Community Center, the Critical Refugee Studies Collective, and UCSD SPACES, sponsors a series of youth workshops at the East African Community and Cultural Center in City Heights. Led by UCSD graduate students and the Center staff, these workshops address topics such as African History and Culture; African Diaspora; Colonialism; and Wellness. When I attended a workshop on April 13, the theme of the workshop was on African Culture and Art. At the end of the workshop, they had invited an elder from the East African community to teach the workshop participants how to drum. In the video, you can see how joyful the drum session was for everyone. I really enjoyed being in the drum circle, hearing the music, and learning how to keep rhythm with the group.
