"AfricAméricas" concert at Frick Fine Arts Auditorium

The "AfricAméricas" concert was preceded by CROSSING HAVANA, a unique, six-day, social documentary photo exhibit that opened on May 6th, at YMWAHA, focusing on Cuba's African descendants living in the capital city of Havana. The entire, week-long event, entitled AFRICAMÉRICAS engaged a multicultural cross-section of Pittsburghers by offering an historical & contemporary perspective of Afro-Cuban & Afro-Latin life. Other activities during AFRICAMÉRICAS included conversations, presentations & roundtable discussions by visiting Cuban scholars & activists, films, drum and dance workshops, and performances by Coro Latinoamericano-Pittsburgh, Balafon West African Dance Ensemble, LACU Dancers, and Slippery Rock University Afro-Colombian Dance Ensemble on Saturday, May 11.
