The Healing Passage: Voices From The Water
How do we heal from the residuals of The Middle Passage? Cultural artists, along with historians and healers, look at present day behavior that is connected to the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. For more than 300 years Africans were carried from their homeland, across the Atlantic Ocean (“The Middle Passage”), into chattel slavery in the Americas and the Caribbean. The residual impact of this African Holocaust still reverberates in the world today through psychological trauma, genetic memory, personal and community consciousness. The artists use music, dolls, dance, altars, spoken word, visual art and ritual to create paths to healing.
Discover the cultural connections first hand. Join us on a Journey to Ghana, West Africa April 11-22, 2014. Visit www.myculturalcompass.com
