Dr. Fernanda Guida and Spelman Portuguese Program Visit Portuguese Flagship students at UGA


On October 31st, the Portuguese Flagship Program at UGA hosted Dr. Fernanda Guida (Spelman College), three students from Spelman College (Amyre Hobbs, Annis Baron, Latisha Jones), one student from Morehouse (Carleon Outlaw), and Portuguese Fulbright Teaching Assistant (Yasmin Paiva de Siqueira). This event promoted a student-student, student-faculty and faculty-faculty interaction through a collaboration of the Portuguese Programs at UGA and Spelman College. UGA students had the opportunity to hear about Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and about students’ research and experiences with African influences in Brazilian music. During the conversation, the group was excited to learn about Afro-blocos and Re-Africanization in Salvador, Bahia from Latisha and Amyre and about Soul Music and Ballroom dance in Brazil from Annis and Carleon, including “Capivogue” - a mix of Capoeira and Vogue. It was a “beautiful and productive day at UGA. Full of academic exchange and wonderful collaboration,” said Dr. Guida.
