Season 5 Episode 9 | 8m 36s
Chinwe Oniah was first drawn to capoeira for its martial arts and self-defense elements. But the Afro-Brazilian art form quickly developed into something greater for her, and she discovered that capoeira is Black people’s cultural legacy, still thriving centuries after its birth.
