WATERBURY - A Waterbury man is using his love of drums to teach lessons during Black History Month and, he says, maybe change some lives along the way.

Kojo Bey organizes drum circles to help raise money for his nonprofit organization, which pays for social-service projects in his native Ghana.

"I love my culture and heritage and I love teaching about it, but I went the next step, which was community development within Ghana," he says.
