Remember when I wanted to know, “Can Capoeira Change the World?” Well, now that I’ve asked the question, I’m setting out to find the answer! This is to announce a new “series” I’m doing (the term will be used more loosely for this one than for my other series) , all about capoeira and change. Whether it’s discussing the rise of capoeira angola and its role in the Black Movement, or spotlighting a specific grupo’s philanthropic project in Brazil, I’m going to cover it. And the best part? It won’t be on this blog!
Instead, the series will be on Blue Snake Books Blog, where I was asked about a month ago to do some writing for them. Blue Snake Books is the leading martial arts book publisher in North America, including of all the (English) capoeira books we know and love so well, so I am very excited to be doing this!
The series will run roughly every 1-2 weeks or so and starts today, with a post discussing Capoeira as a Force of Change. Be sure to check it out, and don’t forget to keep a further eye out for me there!
