Anderson Silva Argolo, Patrick Santos Da Silva, and Urania de Oliveira Rodrigues
will share their knowledge of sacred Afro-Brazilian Candombl? rituals and ceremonies, and offer insightful perspectives on the politics of race and gender in Brazil?s changing religious landscape. Each has had unique experiences as Candombl? practitioners, spiritual leaders, and political activists. Complementing each other in their visits to classes and in public lectures/performances, they will address the importance and relevance of ceremony as both a link to an African past and a means of negotiating the present and future in Brazil.
