“Traversing the African Diaspora: Slavery and Brazilian-African Return Migration”

Description

Dr. Kwame Essien, an Associate Professor of History and Africana Studies at Leigh University visited Ursinus college on February 2, 2018 as part of the Rev. Charles Rice Speaker Series. Dr. Essien’s lecture “Traversing the African Diaspora: Slavery and Brazilian-African Return Migration” provided insight on the untold stories of former Brazilian slaves who settled in Ghana. Under threat from Colonial British officers, both emancipated Brazilian-Africans and their descendants faced mandates that denied them the right to own land. Those in attendance also learned some of the cultures and traditions of the Ga people as they helped the Brazilian-African people reacclimate to their new home.
