Live Virtual Walking Tour of Pelourinho, Salvador, Brazil: Black History in Bahia

Thursday, February 9, 2023

Join us for a walking tour of the Brazilian municipality of Salvador, known for its deep African roots. Our tour guide will walk us through the historic neighborhood of Pelourinho, its old town center, visit important buildings including Sao Francisco Church, known for its richly adorned interior of carvings and gilt woodwork, and the Escola do Olodum, the center for Samba Reggae of Maestro Neguinho do Samba, the music of Bahia. We will learn about the first black Brazilian civic organization, Sociedade Protetora dos Desvalidos founded in 1832, and its role in fighting for the survival of many people during the post-abolition period. Throughout the tour, we will meet residents, street-food vendors and hear traditional music. The tour will conclude in Pelourinho Square, rich in historical monuments and a place to celebrate Afro-Brazilian culture. Call the COA at 781-786-6280 to register.
