Raving Reviews!

"Elizabeth Kahura, one of our new artists, made her first visit to Tyler in November. This incredible performer kept the students spellbound with her authentic African costumes, instruments, props, and stories. Her shows demonstrate the similarities and differences between the US and African cultures; the main goal of her programs is to encourage a more tolerant attitude towards those cultural differences. One of the schools has already begun using her catchphrase as a guideline in their school - "Good choices, good things." THANK YOU, Elizabeth, for joining our roster."

“Hi Ms. Elizabeth,

Thank you again so much for the amazing show the other day. The kiddos are still talking about it 😊”

Dear Elizabeth,

I had many favorite parts of your show, however the part that really spoke to me was your poem about "listening to your own drum." Thank you for that beautiful illustration! I plan to continue to use that analogy with my students and my family, too. Along with, "GOOD CHOICES, GOOD THINGS!"
