Vanderbilt Voices: Zipporah “Z” Champion
“What did you just come from doing?”
“I am the president of Vanderbilt Capoeira Club, and I just hosted our annual event. This year’s title was Black Diaspora Art of Revolution. We talked about Capoeira, and we played a lot of Capoeira, and we kicked each other’s faces, and it was marvelous… Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that originated with the interactions of African enslaved people in Brazil. It encompasses fighting and dancing and kicking and traditions and music and instruments and everything in between… Can I do a move for the picture?”
