Angela daSilva, retired university professor and life long teacher, is a humanist with over 35 years classroom experience, and as a person of the world has visited over 100 countries. Travelling to the countries of the African Diaspora and being a
historian of Slavery have been my passions. The lessons of African philosophy and Slavery have left imprints on our culture that needs a creative outlet.
The world has been the classroom learning foodways, practical arts, spiritual practices of many cultures that I enjoy sharing with my students. Travelling has impressed upon me that being skillful with your hands is a universal art form. The history of people of color taught me that we have practical skills and art forms that are being lost to successive generations.
