Black Prints started on June 4th as a global conversation between six Black storytellers working in different countries who give walking tours about the powerful stories of the African Diaspora. The conversation continues August 27th with a focus on Brazil. We are thrilled to present Kelly Tavares from Rio Encantos based in Rio de Janeiro; Sayuri C. Khimosa from SK Tours based in Salvador, Bahia; and Thaís Rosa Pinheiro from Conectando Territórios based in Rio de Janeiro. Black Prints is hosted and produced by Kamau Ware for Black Gotham Experience.
