<description>A celebration of paradox and tradition at the end of the year!

Come and watch the fifteen minute documentary film, "Didn't We Ramble" that explores the "marching tradition" in African and African American cultures and places in between. Dizzy Gillespie is the narrator.

Then, enjoy the feature film "Drumline"! This film explores the life of a talented young drummer in a college marching band who learns very quickly that raw talent is not enough as he negotiates his way around an institution that learns that formal training is not enough. A fascinating and enjoyable film.

Refreshments will be available.</description>
