Pearl Fu again.
Sudan was the featured country today in downtown Roanoke as Local Colors held another of its periodic celebrations of the nearly 100 cultures represented in the Valley. Women wore colorful native clothing and served Sudanese food and the group Sudanese Peace Group Dancers performed. Cool stuff. Here are some photos for you.

  1. I love the photo of the Sudanese Peace Group Dancers! I work for VT University Relations. May I have permission to use this photo to illustrate a story about the Roanoke Sudanese Women's Group, whose proceeds from crafts support the Peace Group Dancers? And if you have the original large photo file, that would be excellent! Thanks so much for your attention. Shelley Cline, Senior Graphic Designer, cline1 [at]
