The Brazilian Studies and the Portuguese Language Program at Tulane University will host a public poetry reading of O Navio Negreiro, The Slave Ship as part of a Black History Month Special Program on Friday, February 1, at 2:00 PM.

Brazil had the longest-lasting slave economy in the Americas, importing an estimated ten times as many African slaves as the U.S. In recognition of Black History Month, we will celebrate the monumental importance of these four million enslaved men and women with a bilingual reading of the Castro Alves poem O Navio Negreiro (The Slave Ship).

For more information contact: Professor Megwen Loveless (mloveles@tulane.edu).

This event is sponsored by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, in collaboration with the Africana Studies Program and Stone Center for Latin American Studies.
