Over 20 Victoria grannies, undaunted by the rain that kept most others away, danced up a storm of solidarity with their Africa sisters. Along with another 30 groups across Canada, we danced to The Eurhythmics's hit, Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves, singing the key words and grooving to moves like The ANNIE or The ARETHA. And we had a blast! Two dancers even arrived on their bikes!
We danced to call the world's attention to the scale of the global AIDS epidemic and the herculean role African grandmothers are playing in the response.
