In an era of systematic racism, rape culture, gender-based violence, neo-fascism, and religious intolerance, now more than ever, it is important to learn from our African Spiritual #Tradeitions and use them as tools to heal, empower, organize, and activate our communities.

On Saturday, September 23rd, 2017, we will channel our ancestors, using celebration as a tool of liberation through the annual Trade/itions. The multimedia event will explore contemporary manifestations of the African Spiritual traditions that enslaved Africans brought to the west during the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Using the lenses of gender, culture, commerce and technology, Trade/itions will offer a collaborative space for spiritual growth and community development.

Presented by the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), in partnership with Aaron Davis Hall of the City University of New York, Trade/itions will feature panel discussions, film screenings, children art villages, from traditional spiritual leaders, activists, artists, experts, community organizers and a intergenerational concert featuring Ella Andall, Navasha Daya, and OSHUN!

Participants/Performers:

Ella Andalll, OSHUN, Rich Medina, Dr. Jacob Olupona, Gloria Rodriguez, Valnizia Pereira, Dr. Marta Moreno Vega, Navasha Daya, Dr. Akissi Britton, Dowoti Desir, Roger Bonair-Agard, Neg Mawon, Maya Louisa, Wunmi Olaiya, DJ Carlos Mena, Loira Limball, Kwayera Archer, Eliciana Nascimento, Dr. Sheriden Booker, Dr. Funlayo E. Wood, Alafia Stewart, Dr. Rachel Harding, Carlos De Oliveira, Mitzi Bazelais, Ra Sankhu Khepher, David Sosa, Dominick Guerriero, Jamel Cherry, Regine Roumain, Ayoka Wiles Abel, Frank Maloy IV, and much more!

*In response to the devastating conditions Hurricane Harvey and Irma has wrought in the Caribbean, Texas, and Florida, the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the Trade/itions Concert towards Hurricane Relief responsible organizations. Donations for Caribbean Hurricane Relief will be accepted during the event.
