Alma Gottlieb: the Jewish Heritage in Cabo Verde

Dr. Alma Gottlieb, a cultural anthropologist and former President of the Society for Humanistic Anthropology, talks about her research among people in west Africa and especially the Jewish heritage of the people of Cabo Verde. Portuguese Jews and conversos were among the original settlers of Cabo Verde, but later the Inquisition drove them into hiding. Among their descendants today many are re-discovering those Jewish roots and addressing the issues of memory and identity implied in that heritage. She is in New Mexico talking on this subject at the Jewish University lecture series in Santa Fe.
