Anancy Festival Co-Organized by NSU Professor Celebrates Caribbean Heritage in Pembroke Pines

The NSU community is invited to celebrate Caribbean cultural heritage during the Anancy Festival at the South Regional/Broward College Library in Pembroke Pines on Saturday, June 9.

The free festival, co-organized by NSU Assistant Humanities Director and Associate Professor Andrea Shaw, Ph.D., will last from noon to 5 p.m. and features storytelling, dance performances and workshops, and art activities.

The Anancy Festival is a celebration of Caribbean cultural heritage and designed with particular appeal to children and teenagers curious about the Caribbean.

Anancy (or Anansi) is the West African trickster hero of numerous folk tales that are popular across the Caribbean, indeed popular throughout the African Diaspora. This clever and conniving character is familiar to millions of people around the world and an appropriate icon for the festival’s blend of Caribbean culture on a platform geared for children and adolescents
