Bigger than Africa

Bigger than Africa

The most pronounced African Culture of the Diasporas remains the culture of the Yorubas. From Brazil to Trinidad, United States to Cuba, Haiti and across the entire Caribbean. Bigger Than Africa follows the trans-Atlantic slave trade route from West Africa to six different countries – USA, Nigeria, Brazil, Republic of Benin, Trinidad + Tobago and Cuba to explore and find reasons for the survival of this particular West African Culture.
