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.
