Nike Art Gallery and Elegushi Beach

On our way to Elegushi Beach for a day of kite flying, we stopped in at the Lekki Branch of Nike Art Gallery where we were greeted with a very warm reception by a singing troup and Mama Nike herself who welcomed us home. As we sang and dance in several Nigerian languages, including Urhobo, Hausa, Ibo and Yoruba, the children learned about Umoja and Kuumba, two principles of Kwanzaa relating to Unity and shared Creativity. Later, back at Nimbus, we worked on our children written and illustrated book in progress and rehearsed our play, Obama Comes to Africa.
