Founded by Ni’Ja Whitson, Capoeira pra Gente, grounded in capoeira angola as a liberatory, affirming practice for Queer and Trans People of Color and women. This liberatory get down will excavate our responsibilities and commitments to resistance, beginning in capoeira angola, to develop into improvisatory studies in duration, grounded- ness, strength, and transgression as embodied warrior and healing practice. We will create an anticolonial, anti-oppressive, anti-racist space.
