Munch on popcorn and watch “Remember the Titans” on our 32-foot-high inflatable high-definition screen. “Remember the Titans” is based on the true story of coach Herman Boone — portrayed by Denzel Washington — as he molds a racially diverse high school team in Virginia in 1971. Will Patton portrays Bill Yoast, an assistant coach making a transition to help Boone. How these men overcome their differences and turn a group of hostile young men into champions plays out in a remarkable and memorable story.

Linga Koba dolls are from the Ndebele people in Southern Africa. One of the smallest tribes of the region, the Ndebele are noted for their homes painted in brilliant colors that stand out in the drab countryside. Their clothing is similarly colorful and detailed, and so is the bead work on the Ndebele dolls. Participants will create Ndebele dolls from water bottles, cardboard, fabric, beads and other embellishments.
