Angola: The Sounds of Liberation

On Thursday, February 24 the Angola Field Group invites you to step across the lintel, back to the late colonial period (roughly 1945–74) and hear a presentation about how Angolans in the musseques (shantytowns) used music to talk back to their colonial oppressors and what they, the urban poor, hoped to gain from independence. Our presenter, Dr. Marissa Moorman, is an assistant professor of African history at Indiana University, Bloomington USA and lived in Angola off and on from 1997 to 2002.
