    at least somebody appreciates it.. I found a lot of appreciation for African artistic expression in Japan especially.. It's a shame that black folks in the
    US are so ashamed of their own connection to Africa.

    There is a huge demand for ANY form of authentic black/african expression in japan- they crave that stuff over there.. a Japanese girl once told me people in her country get so deep into the reggae/dance-hall culture, women and men spend up 700dolllars to get their hair twisted into permanent locks...

    You think African dance isn't appreciated in the US? It may be true that some Black folx are ashamed of their connection, but its also true that many aren't.

    I don't care which part of the world the boat docked,
    they can take the child out of Africa, but they can't take
    Africa out of the child!
