Yemanjá: Wisdom from the African Heart of Brazil

When: Thu., Oct. 27, 6:45-8:45 p.m. 2016

Narrated by Alice Walker, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Color Purple, who will be our special guest panelist at this Pittsburgh premiere! This new award-winning documentary film by Donna C. Roberts (a Pittsburgh filmmaker) and Donna Read is about the fascinating Candomblé spiritual culture in Bahia, Brazil, a vibrant African-derived tradition which evolved from the ways of enslaved Africans in the New World’s largest slave port. Extraordinary elder women leaders tell stories of Candomblé’s history, social challenges and triumphs, grounded in strong community, and Earth-based wisdom and practice.
