Strand Theatre, 345 Main Street, Rockland, will present “Mother Kofi: The Tale of an African Princess,” a production of African music and dance by Alphonso Horne (shown), on Friday, November 8, at 7:30 p.m. The show will feature dancers from Rockland’s Studio Red. Admission is “pay-what-you-can,” with suggested ticket prices ranging from $20 to free — cost should not be a barrier to attending. “Mother Kofi” is a tribute to the life of Ghanaian princess, activist and prophetess Laura Adorkor Kofi, who worked with Marcus Garvey in the early 20th century and then established the African Universal Church. She was assassinated while addressing a large crowd in Miami in 1928. Horne has performed with leading jazz musicians including Wynton Marsalis and as part of the PBS special “Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett.” For more information, visit or call 594-0070, extension 3.
