African americans in yonkers
Bokandeye African-American Dance Theater is a multi-talented performance organization whose philosophy is a mixture of family, unity, peace, love and respect for all humankind. It was founded by Anthony F. Wooden, Sr in 1994 and today is made up of people of all ages from children to teenagers to adults. It is located at the Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA) of Yonkers at 87 South Broadway. Bokandeye African-American Dance Theater performs at the African-America Heritage Festival as well as the Hudson Riverfest. The word Bokandeye comes from the Woloff language which is a language spoken throughout the Senegambia region of West Africa. When Bokandeye is translated into English it means, family from the same mother; united. Bokandeye is also open to all types of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds because they believe that all cultures are united by the same mother which is Mother Africa.
