Yemanjá: Wisdom from the African Heart of Brazil, narrated by Alice Walker

A film about a little known history of Africa in the Americas. A story of the Afro-Brazilian spiritual tradition of Candomblé, with a distinctly ecological worldview. Told through the voices of women leaders, we learn of Candomblé’s social struggles and triumphs in this largest former slave port in the Americas.
