On September 22nd and 23rd 2017, the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), in partnership with Aaron Davis Hall of the City University of New York, will present TRADE/ITIONS, a multidisciplinary two-day conference exploring contemporary retentions, re-creations, and representations of the African Spiritual traditions that came to the west with enslaved Africans during the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.

TRADE/ITIONS charts the trajectory of practices, philosophies and cultures in African spiritual traditions of the diaspora through the middle passages of space, time, and trade. Utilizing the lenses of gender, culture, commerce and technology, the conference will uncover collaborative spaces for spiritual growth and community development. Along the boundaries of cultural and ritual difference, TRADE/ITIONS identifies African Spiritual Traditions as trans-national treasures, storehouses of history, workshops of resistance and lighthouses to self-determination as we cross over new seas of globalization, displacement, technological proliferation and evolution.
