Dr. Joseph Pecorelli, Assistant Professor in Portuguese, invited Capoeira Maculele  who gave a capoeira lesson and performance. Capoeira is a beautiful and acrobatic Brazilian martial art of African-Brazilian origins. It originated during Brazil’s colonial period on plantations. Today one can find capoeira academies all over the world.


Dr. Pecorelli would like to thank everyone who attended and helped to promote the event, including Jeanine Merck, the Latino Students Association, and the Black Student Union. Obrigado!

It was a successful event that attracted a big number of audience. We thank you all for joining Dr. Pecorelli to this event.
