A $5 love donation at the door. This event is celebrating culture and music of Nigeria as well as the music and activism of Fela Kuti. We will have a brief discussion after the screening. We will also have food and drinks to share that will include some authentic Nigerian dishes. Also, to honor the Father of Afrobeat we ask that you come dressed as one of Fela's dancers or as a member of the band or in your African best. If you don't have any African attire that is fine. Just come as you are.
