Event Information

SDCC and Soul Children's Theater celebrate Kwanzaa! Seven Spools of Thread: adapted from the story by Angela Shelf Medearis Produced by The South Dallas Cultural Center; Directed by Antoine Girard Soul Children's Theatre's youth company presents this folktale that introduces children to Kwanzaa's seven principles, while also suggesting how Kente cloth was first created. In a Ghanian village, a father's will commands that his seven argumentative sons must make gold from silk thread ''by the time the moon rises,'' without fighting. Working together, the brothers create a tapestry of Kente cloth, the first multicolored cloth the village has seen, which they sell to the king's treasurer for gold, before returning to their village to farm and live harmoniously. This play incorporates all the Kwanzaa values. Stay after the play ends and enjoy more creative activities with SDCC resident companies and patronize our vendors. South Dallas Cultural Center Theater This production is made possible by a generous grant from CHASE Bank in partnership with Big Thought/Thriving Minds.
