Salvador, Bahia Carnaval 2017

celebration_1

It’s that time again..

We did it last year and it was AMAZING but this time, I wanted to give more that the beach and parties. It’s so much more to Brazil than beautiful people and parades. There is a culture that is so vibrant, alive and forgotten by many of us in America. This part wasn’t taught to us in our schools. They never mentioned that this was the first drop off point for the slave ships leaving Africa. They never mentioned that this is where the majority of the slaves were left. Bahia has the largest population of blacks outside of Nigeria. A part of Brazil holds our history as African Americans. It’s apart of our ancestral fingerprint. This upcoming carnaval, we will skip the lure of Rio to visit Bahia. Details below

CACHOEIRA, BRAZIL - AUGUST 15: Vendors look on during the Festival of the Good Death on August 15, 2014 in Cachoeira, Brazil. The Afro-Brazilian Sisterhood of the Good Death is made up of female descendants of slaves, all age 50 and over, and honors both Catholic traditions and Afro-Brazilian Candomble religious rites. The sisterhood is believed to be the oldest organization for women of African descent in the Americas. The state of Bahia received at least 1.2 million slaves from Africa and remains the most African of Brazilian states, where blacks make up around 80 percent of the population.
