Did You Know? An exploration of ancient African knowledge about water through film, Negro Spirituals, poems and dialogue

We invite you to join us on a transformative journey as we bring to you an engaging afternoon filled with film, Negro Spirituals, poetry, food, and meaningful dialogue. Come and co-create with us an experience that celebrates our ancient wisdom—a wisdom that endured through the challenges of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and remains relevant even in our lives today.

*Film: Explore Nigeria’s sacred healing waters in our film “We Are The Endless Roar” (74 minutes). Through these encounters, we’re reminded of the deep bond between water and life.

*Soulful Melodies: Discover sacred African traditional beliefs about water that are embedded in some Negro Spirituals. Vocal performances by:

New York African Chorus Ensemble

Gloria Anderson

*Poetry: Explore Langston Hughes’ poem for profound insights and meaningful clues about the deity Osun.

*Meaningful Dialogue: Engage in thought-provoking conversations as we explore the wisdom that sustained our communities during the Transatlantic Slave Trade and discover its relevance in our lives today.

*Flavors of Heritage: Taste delicious food that pays homage to our rich cultural roots.
