The featured theatrical performer, Iyaba Ibo Mandingo hails from the Caribbean and brilliantly intertwined poetry, prose, song and live painting to create an experience that both enlightened and entertained. Stories from his own life, created a clear mental picture of reminiscent, humorous and sometimes painful experiences had by many in the Caribbean and the continental United States. The 50 plus persons who attended left asking for more, suggesting that the performances be taken to the schools, other upcoming cultural events and that recordings be made available for the wider public.
