Come see our Yazzy student performers in a show you don't want to miss! My Heritage: Recognizing Black History is a story of two sisters in college who discover their heritage by going back in time. From their African homeland to the classroom where Ruby Bridges made history, these girls’ journey through the days of slavery until they are deep in the heart of the civil rights movement. As the story unfolds, it is intertwined and enriched with music and dance that will captivate your soul and take you on the journey of our ancestors. Songs by James Brown, Mahalia Jackson, Aretha Franklin, John Legend, Cynthia Erivo, Sam Cooke, and many others will have you clapping and singing along. The telling of Black history is necessary, and this story told by our Yazzy performers will leave you laughing, crying, and celebrating Black Heritage!
