Bhangra team formed by students at Cleveland State University

A photograph taken during the summer of 1976 of a bhangra team formed by students at Cleveland State University and local high school students to perform during American bicentennial celebrations in the tour of cities in the Midwest. The team performed that summer in Kentucky, Ohio and perhaps other nearby states.

Inscription on the back of the photograph reads: "Swapna & Sujata with their American & Indian friends who performed 'bhangade' in many American cities during U.S. bicentennial celebrations, 1976."
