Students in the McKinney Academy performing arts group gave children a “sneak peek” at their performance of Pete Seeger’s “Abiyoyo” Wednesday, Feb. 23, in the Barnes & Noble Booksellers at Birkdale. They then performed their adaptation of the South African folk story Friday, Feb. 25, at the 412 Amour St. school in Davidson.

The performing arts group, comprised of students in kindergarten through fifth grade, read Abiyoyo as part of their Black History Month celebration.
