      EVENT DETAILS
      MAAFA Influence 2019

      The MAAFA (pronounced Mah-AH-fah), describes the real calamity, catastrophe, tragedy or disaster as it refers to the period in world history, identified as the Middle Passage or Transatlantic Slave Trade.  It is our contention that in order for the African-American family to engage in a liberation process, it must face the trauma and consequences of its bondage in America. The MAAFA Influence commemoration is a healing psycho-theatrical production which has occurred over the last seventeen years in the Hollow section of Bridgeport, CT. This years production entitled “Foreigners in the Land, Yet Claiming Our Peace and Place”, seeks to explore the contributions, stories and influence of African American history in America and Bridgeport, Connecticut. Despite the growing culture and treatment of the “foreigner”, we are reminded of what biblical scripture reveals in Leviticus 19:33: “When a foreigner lives with you in your land, don’t take advantage of them. Treat the foreigner the same as a native. Love them like one of your own. Remember you were once foreigners...” We pray to see you there. Namaste.
