In The Malaga Ship: A Story of Maine and the Middle Passage, renowned performer Antonio Rocha tells the true, heartbreaking tale of the Malaga, a ship built in Maine, which carried enslaved people to Brazil. Rocha brings this thought-provoking history to life with stunning virtuosity.

The story is mostly told from the ship's point of view, with details about the trade never taught in school. Drawing on his skills as a storyteller and mime, Rocha also sings and produces realistic sounds as he weaves the history of Malaga with his own fascinating Afro-Brazilian biography.

A question-and-answer session will follow the 45-minute solo performance.

Organized by the JFK Hyannis Museum and the Hyannis Public Library, and supported by the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, this adult-oriented event is free to attend. It will be held at a site within steps of the museum: 529 Main Street, Hyannis, MA (the Sturgis Charter School performance venue.)

Free parking is available curbside, across the street by Cape Cod Community College's continuing education center, as well as behind the JFK Hyannis Museum ne
