GABRIELA ORTIZ Yanga
A partnership with the Latino Arts Project and African American Museum, Yanga is inspired by the story of Gaspar Yanga, an African prince who was shipped to Mexico as a slave in 1570, but managed to escape. He subsequently led a band of escaped slaves to raid the authorities’ caravans and eventually helped found the first free town from slavery in North America. He thus qualifies as a historic freedom fighter, which dovetails into the all-embracing message to mankind.
Latino Arts Project is proud to partner with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for a special concert to coincide with the exhibition Yanga: Journeys to Freedom currently at the African American Museum until October 31, 2022.
