Liquid Knowledges will examine the the contributions of Africans to the ethno-botany of the new world as well as the ideas of the enslaved populations of the Americas. It will present the “garden” in history as a focus on the legacies of continental Africa — the way in which ways of knowing, thinking and of living were adapted and reformulated in the creation of the complex world of Caribbean Cultures and those of the continental Americas. A team from Brown University consisting of Dr. Anthony Bogues, Director of the Center for Slavery and Justice, and Dr. Geri Augusto of the Department of Africana Studies will contribute to the visual and historical content.
The mission of the City of Miami’s Little Haiti Cultural Complex is to present and preserve Afro-Caribbean cultures‚ train the next generation of leaders and leverage arts and culture as tools for transformation and community building.
