Poetry Reading: Navio Negreiro "The Slave Ship"


Poetry Reading: Navio Negreiro "The Slave Ship"

Uptown Campus

Ship from transatlantic slave trade

Finish out Black History Month with a tragic look at the Middle Passage through the poetry of Castro Alves. We will read the poem in its original Portuguese and provide a translation. Indulge in cocadas, small coconut sweets (akin to pralines), representative of the sugar boom economy that relied on slave labor.
