How do we heal from the residuals of The Middle Passage?
Cultural artists, along with historians and healers, look at present day behavior that is connected to the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. The residual impact of this African Holocaust still reverberates in the world today through psychological trauma, genetic memory, personal and community consciousness. The artists use music, dolls, dance, altars, spoken word, visual art and ritual to create paths to healing.    A film by S. Pearl Sharp    90 min. 2004
