Formed in 1983, African American Dance Ensemble of Durham, North Carolina, remains a thriving institution and living repository of Dr. Davis' legacy and mission for over 30 years, touching the world over teaching, performing and building on 5 continents. Dr. Davis has served as Elder Advisor to leading African Dance and Drum organizations throughout the country, and as Professor at North Carolina Central University and Duke University respectively.
And I know like everyone else who shares in this Dance and Drum kinship of magnificent legacy, that this year's call to the Drum shall have us all dancing with hearts full, filled with grand Spirit and inspiration paying homage to our Ancestral Guardian Gran, Baba Chuck Davis, eeeeyo!
*love, light and sweet Ancestral ascension Baba*
