A Proverbial Education
Sunday, May 5 @ 1:00 pm
212 NE 59th Terrace, Miami, FL 33137 United States
A unique form of folklore, primarily oral in tradition, proverbs are expressions of wisdom passed down from generation to generation to impart common sense and valuable life lessons. Present in nearly every part of the globe, they constitute a powerful tool for educating a community on how to avoid mistakes of the past. Mgr. Pierre Andre Pierre, Prof. Max Manigat, and Dr. Emeline Alexis-Schulz will discuss the importance of proverbial education in maintaining harmony in personal, family and community relationships, and the role proverbs have played specifically in Haitian society.
