Ancestors in Training: Session 2

  • Caribbean Cultural Center 120 East 125th Street New York, NY, 10035 United States (map)

The Dance Floor As Sacred Space edition 

“We are the ancestors of the future and what we do now will have an impact.” - Yeye Luisah Teish

This is part 2 of the 3-part Ancestors in Training series created and facilitated by Veronica Agard of Veronica Agard, Vera Icon LLC

Sometimes we pray with our feet. We move to a rhythm that feels tenderly familiar, stirring up memories of our loved ones and our people. How can we understand the ancient and the contemporary? What does it mean when we take the bembe to the museum? Can we square the rigor of the academy with the intentions of parties to curate multifaceted spaces? How do we continue to honor the families and networks that are created with respect?

Join Chiquita Brujita, DJ Brujo Boogie Rainey Cruz, and DJ Bembona for a community conversation on the Dance Floor As Sacred Space.
