2/16/2006 —

With storytelling and song, booming drums and shaking gourds, the Healing Force takes to the stage at Penn State York's Pullo Family Performing Arts Center on Feb. 23 at 7 p.m.  The program, in celebration of African-American History Month, is free and open to the public. 

The Healing Force shares a rousing celebration of African culture for audiences of all ages. Founded in 1975 by Joseph and Gail Anderson, the group began full-time professional work in 1990. The Healing Force has performed at the National Storytelling Festival, the Bay Area Storytelling Festival, and numerous schools, colleges, festivals, churches, and museums throughout the country.  Joined by son Karim and daughter Sonji, this family offers performances that are fun, inspirational, and unforgettable.  With the rhythms of drums, shekeres, and thumb pianos, this family tells traditional stories from Africa.
Don't miss the opportunity to discover The Healing Force. This program is part of Penn State York's cultural and performing artists series sponsored, in part, by the York Newspaper Company.
