About this show

When a great African king desires a wife, only the most worthy maidens are invited to meet him. Both of Mufaro's daughters are beautiful, but does either have the inner beauty of a potential queen? Told through African dance, drumming, narration, and song, Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters: An African Tale celebrates goodness, generosity, and kindness of heart. The show is an adaptation of the Caldecott and Coretta Scott King Award-winning book by Brooklyn native John Steptoe.

Note: Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters is part of a family series and is recommended for children in grades K-5.
