About the Event

The Susu Healing Legacies program is a (reclamation) of our ancestral birthrights and connects people of the African diaspora to the wisdom of the motherland.

(Ancestral Voices) is a series of interactive African language classes that are open to everyone but are especially supportive to people of the African Diaspora.

For our first series, we are offering Yoruba with Shittu A. Fọwẹ́wẹ́, an ancient African language that reflects a living culture.

Equally beneficial to practitioners of Traditional African Spirituality and folks looking to connect to their roots, (Shittu) will offer three levels to build on skills and learn about Yoruba culture.

He has deep knowledge in Yorùbá, Arabic & English. So, as a linguist, he interacts in his class with students with a special approaches suitable for easy assimilation, understanding and self-development.  He is an open spiritual teacher and has trained many students in diaspora in acquisition of Yorùbá Language and culture.  Finally, no man without a town, he is from Sakí, Ọ̀yọ́ State, Yorùbá Land, Nigeria.
