B. Critical analysis
1).This event “Africa cultural finest” as it was referred to by the organizers was held on the Friday the 23rd of March 20101 in the famous Orlando national theatre. It involved the various artistic performances from the African countries who include amongst others the “kayamba Africa” music group from Kenya and a thrilling performance by the Zimbabwean finest “Oliver Mutukudzi”.Being organized by the International students club (ISC), it was an event that did successfully depict the cultural perspectives of African countries through the students who originated From there and were studying at USIU.
I choose this event for its authenticity and ability to facilitate the recognition of the African culture in the United States of America through the student leadership. It was an event that was exciting and failure of attendance someone left out as student at the USIU and someone who loves culture. I am very much into cultural studies especially the African Music and dance and this event was based on my area of interest and that is why I settled for it. I gained much from the event especially the food compositions and their tradition mode of presentations.
2). Africa cultural finest event enabled one to know the way one moves with the African dance performers and the décor as well as costumes linked to it. One is able to feel the authenticity of the tunes and costumes that are glued to it. It is an experience that is accompanied by the naturality of the African dreams to liberation in the near future.
The event implied that cultural dances and songs, meals and poems are a liberty that we should be proud of and use it to reach out to the rest of the world due to the connectivity it creates to the rest of the globe. Importantly this event was meant to facilitate the opening of between students as they danced and ate the African delicacies together.
Humanity is about creating connections and fun for the enjoyment of by the people. Its themes do revolve around the cultural points of view and the attendance in the Africa cultural finest event was related to the humanities thematic concerns and goals.
