Defending Her Turf

She doesn't just sing a song, she goes looking for it.

She doesn't just sing a song, she goes looking for it.

Longtime participant Ellsworth Ausby is planning a Father's Day "tribute to the ancestors" and helped assemble an exhibition inside the Grand Army Plaza arch featuring drums from Nigeria and art by and about the drummers (the show runs through July 5). The circle began 30 years ago as the rehearsal space for Abiodun McCray and some friends. For many, the Sunday gathering is a spiritual event, but McCray, who repairs drums and teaches dance, says, "It's a way of relieving tension from the week past and getting energized for the week ahead."—Josh Goldfein
