Special Edition Bate Papo! Celebrate Black History Month with students of Portuguese and Africana Studies. We’ll be sampling sweet cocadas while we expose the injustices of Brazil’s slave trade with a reading of “Navio Negreiro” by Castro Alves. We’ll be outside the LBC on the patio of Pocket Park (next to bookstore in case of rain). This event is sponsored by TULASO and the Stone Center for Latin American Studies. Admission is free.
