‘This is our patrimony’: Dance professor archives two decades of Afro-Cuban history (University of Alaska Anchorage)

University of Alaska Anchorage: ‘This is our patrimony’: Dance professor archives two decades of Afro-Cuban history. “For the past 27 years, UAA theater and dance professor Dr. Jill Flanders Crosby has been working on a project spanning generations, mediums and even the Atlantic Ocean. Since 1997, Flanders Crosby has traveled between Perico and Agramonte, Cuba, and the West African communities of Dzodze, Ghana, and Adjodogou, Togo, to preserve each community’s history and traditions via video and audio recordings. Don’t call this work a passion project. According to Flanders Crosby, it’s much more than that.”
