Event Details

CCCADI is on the move and we have conjured up a storm to jumpstart this season's Roots and Stars! Join us and Oya priest Isoke Nia, artist Sabine Blaizin, and writer Ibi Zoboi at the center of it as we listen for the voice of Oya in the winds of Octavia Butler’s work. Through readings and performances that explore Butler's characters and examine the natural laws embodied by the Yoruba diety Oya we will celebrate change, rejuvenation, and the inevitable invincible magic of growth.  

This salon series examines ancient African traditions, New World religious customs, as well as contemporary spiritual practices to understand the foundations and evolutions of spiritual reachings throughout the Black World. Peering through the lenses of ethos, aesthetics, and practice, Roots and Stars uncovers voices of vibrant visionaries and tradition keepers who attest to the breadth of Our contribution to the Global Soulscape.

6:30pm Panel featuring Isoke Nia, Ibi Zoboi and Sabine Blaizin begins 

8:00pm Multimedia Interactive Performance produced by Sabine Blaizin begins.
