Nathifa Dance Company to Bring West African Dance to North Birmingham Regional Library


BPL @ Night presents the Nathifa Dance Company, which will entertain patrons of all ages with an exciting program of West African dance and drumming at the North Birmingham Regional Library on Tuesday evening, July 7.
