i have known of the Laini Kuumba Ngma Troup for many of their 34 years of existence and I have been so impressed not only with their ability to perform, but their desire to preserve, promote and present traditional African customs, culture and traditions. Thier long history as an arts and educational organization being able to survive during hard times of the economy is a testament to their committment to providing dance, theatre, visual and performing arts to a wide spectrum of students and audiences across the United States. They are certainly worthy of major support both financial and technical.
