Harambee: Modern Family
2/20/2013, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
African Student Union is an organization that strives to promote the awareness of African culture throughout the Vanderbilt community. This year's show tries to bridge the gap between African culture and other cultures world-wide through dances and performances such as Afro-Bollywood Fusion dance and Japanese Taiko drumming, just to name a couple of our wonderful performances.
Harambee means "all pull together" or "working together for a common purpose" in Swahili. Our event strives to showcase the various components of African culture (food, music, fashion, dance) while raising money towards a cause that benefits African countries.
This year, a majority of our ticket sales will be donated to Vanderbilt Blood:Water Mission, a non-profit that works closely with Nashville-based Blood:Water Mission International to put on grassroots campaigns to raise awareness and funds for water and HIV/AIDS crises in sub-Saharan Africa.
Join ASU for an evening of food, laughter, music, fashion, and great performances as we celebrate African culture.
