“When I first Remember” was featured in Adam Parker’s article on the 2016 Moja Festival:
2016 MOJA Festival offers wide variety of events
What an Awesome Play. Absolutely Unforgettable. I asked from the Oldest to the Youngest: What did You learn from this This True Play about Our Ancestors #IRememberWhen
1. I wanted to get up & dance with the drums. It Sounds like I know the Songs
2. I wanted to cry because the drums told the Slaves danger was coming. The Lady was screaming for her Mother. They took her Mother. They put a rope on the ladies neck. They tied her hands. I wanted to cry.
3. It was good. It made me sad.
4. She watched the kids laughing & having fun. 5. I didn’t know we can eat pigged feet. Have You ever tasted it? Me: Yes. I wanna taste it? How do You make it. Me: I will ask Your Mom if she will cook it for You.
6. It made me sad. Why did the people do that to the Slaves. They can sing Too.
7. The people was good.
8. She was clapping every time she heard the Drums from #adunde
