Wednesday of our International Festival Week celebrates the continent of Africa! Our celebration begins with this special workshop hosted by the UB African Student Association. Stop by the lobby of the Student Center for a chance to make your own set of Waist Beads, which have been worn by women in Northern and Western Africa for centuries and are steeped in tradition and ceremony. Learn more about their history and meaning, and create your own personalized set of Waist Beads that can be worn over or under your clothes!

Sponsored by the African Student Association and the International Festival Committee.
