There have been drum circles in Congo Square for centuries, a deeply meaningful tradition that carries on to this day. On June 5, 2016, today's Congo Square drum circle regulars were joined by a group of Nigerians who were celebrating the ordination of the first Nigerian priest in New Orleans, as well as tourists from South Africa and other places, and a group from Breakout, a local support group for LGBTQ youth. We happened to catch a few minutes of the celebration and are sharing it here with you.
