On February 21, Urban Gateways touring group Ayodele performed their show “Amazing Africa” at the Garfield Park Conservatory in honor of Black History Month. This show features traditional West African dance, drumming, attire, and proverbs that share messages of unity and empowerment. It’s an incredible performance and we’re glad patrons and families got to experience it in the lush atmosphere of the Conservatory!
