Brazil had the longest-lasting slave economy in the Americas, importing an estimated 10x as many enslaved Africans as the U.S. In a belated recognition of Black History Month, we will acknowledge the monumental importance of these four million enslaved people with a trilingual reading of Castro Alves' poem, "O Navio Negreiro" / "The Slave Ship".
We are searching for Spanish, Portuguese, and English readers! You can sign up here.
You can also access the poem here.
Any questions and concerns can be directed to email@example.com , don't hesitate to reach out!
