ok . so im a true nerd and today in my afam class we discussed the beginnings of jazz and blues and all that good stuff. AND Mardi Gras’ “Black Indian’s” I love the connections of African Diaspora. This could be a picture from any other Carnival in the country or maybe even the Caribbean. Although these African Americans are emulating the Native American resistance during the Westward expansion, a film we watched showed the connections to similar costumes in the continent of Africa. Just thought I’d share :)
