Macky Tall teaches Timbuktu at Mary Munford Elementary School

MackyTeachingTimbuktu2March 12, 2015: As part of our ongoing TEACHING TIMBUKTU project, one of our Mali teachers Macky TALL was active once again with Third Grade students studying the Empire of Mali for the Virginia SOL. …. The students of Miss Katz’s class in Mary Munford School  were very knowledgeable already. Macky TALL, our domestic White West African, was impressed with their knowledge and enthusiasm. In addition to knowing about griots, these students have now heard the music of Toumani DIABATE and Ali Farka TOURE.  They also discovered that, before Ali Farka died, these two musicians played together won a Grammy for their amazingly beautiful CD IN THE HEART OF THE MOON.
