Description
With the upsurge of interest in the Romani people and their culture, a lot of fiction has been intermixed with a limited understanding of real Romani traditions. Too often the Rom are portrayed only as tambourine-jangling caricatures. This class will give a historical overview of the Romani people and separate the fact from fiction in what is traditionally a closed culture. The class instructor is of real Romani decent and grew up in the modern traditional Romani culture. Come prepared to ask questions and take notes.
