From Tragedy to Triumph Part 2: "The Spirit of My Home"

From Tragedy to Triumph presents “The Spirit of My Home,” an evening of conversation and art about the religious conversion of enslaved Africans to Christianity during the 17th Century. Part two of a seven-part series, this multi-generational story of spirituality and ancestral knowledge is told through a blend of animation, film and narration. The event will close with a Q&A session with the artists and performers led by USC Thornton professor Ron McCurdy.

This event originally aired on Friday, March 12, 2021.
