If you're free tonight and are looking for something FREE to do, we suggest the following:
Robert Farris Thompson: Eshu in the Americas
March 18, 6pm-8pm
MoCADA, 80 Hanson Place, Brooklyn, NY 11217
Yale Professor of African & African-American Art History, Yoruba practitioner and internationally acclaimed author, Dr. Robert Farris Thompson will present a dynamic lecture/discussion on the Yoruba deity Eshu (the Trickster). Dr. Thompson will trace the deity's history from West Africa to the Americas and how the Yoruba religion is practiced today.
