This song-and-dance celebration of South African heritage is rooted in defiance of apartheid. Todd Twala, one of Africa Umoja's founding members, lost her family home due to the Group Areas Act that forced black people away from valuable properties and white settlements. Both she and her co-founder, Thembi Nyandeni, were prohibited from performing for white audiences until the 1970s. Their creation, Africa Umoja, is now a long-running show that performs in residence at the Victory Theater in Johannesburg, South Africa, and tours the world spreading a message of unity and peace.
