PLAYDATE! Free Third Sundays at Sugar Hill Children’s Museum

Join us for a fun filled family day of art exhibitions, art-making, and more!

Movement workshop with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater:
In keeping with the theme of Thanksgiving as a time to explore the concepts of passage, and world travel, we invite all to consider new ways of moving through space with a modern dance workshop facilitated by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

A special reading of We Came to America: Playdate’s Story Hour will feature a dynamic reading of Faith Ringgold’s 2016 book We Came to America in celebration of the first Thanksgiving and the timeless narratives of migrating in search of a new life.

Art making inspired by the work of Faith Ringgold and stories from around the globe: To continue our yearlong celebration of the prolific legacy of Faith Ringgold, we make art inspired by the exhibition Sugar Hill Songbook with a specific focus on her 2016 book We Came to America. 

Percussion workshop and Performance: We will celebrate the drum as one of the first instrument Pilgrims encountered upon arriving in America. Famed Brazilian jazz drummer Annette Aguilar will teach about the percussion workshop, orchestrate a jam session, and close the day with a most energetic performance.
