Sou Sou is a new program for families with children 4 to 12 years old to explore the African diaspora. Each month, special events are planned with dance, music, and workshops that explore cultural history and traditions.

Come on March 10 and learn all about Mama Earth.

Children will make spring pop-up bouquets and enjoy a spring cultural presentation.

The program was inspired by the savings clubs tradition of the African Diaspora with a twist — a culture savings club for the entire family. Children participate in art, dance, music workshops, and many more activities to honor and explore the history and traditions. Callaloo Kids, a children’s media brand that promotes culture literacy, social awareness, and puppet theater, is on residency.

Sou Sou, March 10 from noon to 4 pm. Free. Pre-registration required.

Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (120 E. 125th St. between Lexington and Park avenues in East Harlem, cccadi.org/sousou).
