The Schools of Music at both the University of Louisville and UDLA are running an exchange program with students and faculty; UDLA students are in town to participate in UofL’s JazzFest and perform in local schools.

Feb 15 - Love Ghana, a visual tour
Sister Cities of Louisville’s Cultural Ambassador Intern to Ghana, Cameren Golden, showed photos and told about her experience of living in Ghana during a festive evening with African food and wine.
The Louisville-Tamale Sister City relationship, one of the oldest African Sister City relationships in the country, is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year! This relationship was partly founded to create a positive impact in the Northern Region of Ghana and to improve Louisville’s knowledge of the people of Africa.
While Cameren was in town, she visited students at DuBois Academy and Central High School.
