This virtual experience immersion project on African Captivity in Brazil from 1750-1850 lets patrons live the journey from Elmina Castle in Ghana to Salvador, Bahia (Brazil). This six-to-seven week period was essential in transforming the captive’s body and mind from free to newly-enslaved person. The stories are based on research obtained from visual and archival materials, the database and the numerous primary accounts from African captives, creoles, elites, ship captains and ship legs. This exhibit returns to UCF Celebrates the Arts 2020 after high demand last year.

This event is generously sponsored by Baker Barrios Architects.

Tickets: Free, no ticket required. 
Sign up at exhibit; Experience is approximately 15 minutes.
