Music, Peace, and Justice in the Americas: A Tribute to John Burdick

Please join the Program on Latin America and the Caribbean (PLACA) to celebrate and honor the life of our dear colleague and friend, Professor of Anthropology, John Burdick. John’s work on race, religion, and music in Brazil and on peace and justice across the Americas inspires this PLACA musical tribute. Mark your calendar to gather in Zoom with other PLACA friends to relax together and enjoy listening to different musical performers throughout the Fall and Spring semesters.
