DANCE | Sankofa African Drumming and Dance 

Sankofa African Drumming and Dance's annual concert will be presented this week at The College at Brockport. The program, "Ni iranti ologbe baba wa Chuck Davis" (In memory of our father, Chuck Davis), this year honors the legacy of Davis, who died last May. Davis was the founder of the DanceAfrica Festival — held annually in New York City, District of Columbia, and Chicago — and of the Durham, North Carolina-based African American Dance Ensemble. The commemoration was planned by the department's new artistic director and assistant professor, Jenise Akilah Anthony, and includes work by two guest artist-choreographers: Ivory Coast native Jean Claude Lessou; and Dallas-based Cassandra Hines.

The Sankofa African Dance and Drum Ensemble performances take place in the Hartwell Dance Theater in Hartwell Hall, Kenyon Street, on the Brockport campus (350 New Campus Drive). Thursday, April 26, through Saturday, April 28, at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, April 29, at 2 p.m. General tickets are $17 ($12 for seniors, alumni, faculty, and staff, and $9 for students). 395-2787;
