Bigger Than Africa
When the slave boats docked in the Americas, Cuba and the Caribbean, hundreds of cultures and religions came with the Africans but only one survived the plantations. To date, the most pronounced African Culture of the Diasporas remains the culture of the Yoruba. From Brazil to Trinidad, the United States to Cuba, Haiti and the entire Caribbean, this West African culture dominates all other Cultures of Africa and could be said to have survived the plantations for hundreds of years. Bigger Than Africa follows the trans-Atlantic slave trade route from West Africa to six different countries-- USA, Nigeria, Brazil, Republic of Benin, Trinidad and Tobago and Cuba-- to explore and find reasons for the survival of this particular West African Culture.
