DESCRIPTION"DiscoTech" is short for "Discovering Technology." It is a term coined by the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition which defines a replicable model for a multimedia, mobile neighborhood workshop fair. DiscoTechs are designed so that participants learn more about the impact and possibilities of technology within our communities. DiscoTechs feature interactive, multimedia workshops designed to demystify, engage, and inform the community about issues of Internet use and ownership, and our communications rights on and offline.Screening of "Asmarina," a documentary on the habeshacommunity of Milan, followed by conversation between director, Medhin Paolos, Saaret Yoseph, native Washingtonian and filmmaker, and Elisa Sartore, anthropologist

DESCRIPTIONCapoeira Angola was carried to Brazil by enslaved Africans. In slavery-era Brazil, Africans disguised capoeira's power as a joking and playful acrobatic dance. Inremote maroon societies, quilombos, the practice was cultivated as resistance and self-defense. Prior to the turn of the century, capoeira was outlawed in Brazil, stigmatized as dangerous gang activity. It remained banned until the 1930s. Vincente Ferreira Pastinha, otherwise known as Mestre Pastinha, codified the movements and philosophy of Capoeira Angola, founding his first school in 1941. In 1995, FICA was founded to preserve, promote, and research Capoeira Angola. FICA DC and its dedicated community supports this global mission while serving the city's youth.
