In honor of Black History Month, please join the Yale African American Affinity Group, Future Leaders of Yale, and Yale Latino Networking Group for a family friendly virtual Afro-Puerto Rican Bomba dance workshop that will be led by Movimiento Cultural Afro-Continental (MCAC), Inc.
Bomba is the oldest Puerto Rican dance and music style that is rooted in resistance and dates back to the days of slavery.
Movimiento Cultural Afro-Continental (MCAC), Inc., is a cultural, arts, and community based organization whose mission is to educate people across Connecticut about Puerto Rico’s rich African-based folklore, music, dance, and other art forms. Their goal is to build and foster racial tolerance, relationships, alliances, and cultural awareness among community groups. MCAC’s group leaders are highly respected cultural workers who have engaged in this art form for decades.
