The ninth annual Martin Luther King Day celebration was held at the Smith Middle School in Glastonbury Monday. On stage, the Sankofa Kuumba Cultural Arts Consortium of Hartford performed a selection of traditional African drum and dance selections which included colorful costumes and djembe drums. In this photo, Chi Sharpe of New York City plays a djembe to accompany the dancers on stage during the performance in the Smith Middle School auditorium. "At the center of non-violence stands the principle of love." - Martin Luther King Jr.
