After a Feast, Student Show Celebrates a Continent with Fashion and Talent

This weekend, Africa Alliance hosted a couple of African-themed events, starting Friday evening with “Tastes of Africa,” a feast of traditional dishes. Saturday the student group organized the second annual “Pan-African Fashion Show” in Kresge Auditorium, featuring music, dance, poetry, and fashion.

The Africa Alliance says its mission is to facilitate cultural exchanges between students interested in Africa. This year, four students from Africa — specifically Botswana, Kenya, Rwanda, and South Africa — are studying at Bowdoin. Many other Bowdoin students have families who have emigrated from Africa. Check out photos and a video.
