The Greenport School District is holding its Black History Month assembly Monday featuring the all-female Caribbean troupe Retumba.
The group’s singers, dancers and musicians interweave traditional rhythms and ancient melodies to produce a high-energy, uplifting performance.
Elementary school principal Joe Tsaveras said the district was able to secure the act through joint support from the Oysterponds Elementary School District and Floyd Memorial Library.
The event is scheduled for 9:25 a.m. for high school students and again at 1 p.m. for elementary students.
Mr. Tsaveras said the community is invited to attend.
