The Skyline College International Student Program and International Student Club exhibited a cultural celebration event for Africa on April 12, 2017. This colorful affair shed light to what different African traditions are like.
The event was fascinating for spectators who did not know much about Africa. They learned about the economies, attractions and lifestyles of different African countries through informative posters made by our own students and enjoyed a music performance by Piwai, a Zimbabwean artist based in Oakland. Her melodic voice and use of the mbira, a traditional thumb piano, left listeners in awe of the her sound. During the performance, the audience members adorned themselves with traditional Côte d’Ivoire face paint and ended the event by indulging in delectable South African snacks.
ISP will continue to provide international and cultural programs and events for Skyline students, faculty and staff members and the greater Skyline community. Please check future events on the ISP website at: www.skylinecollege.edu/international/
