Pulse 2013: Reviving the Connection, our 8th installment, explored the evolution and influence of the Pan-African tradition and culture, as well as the interconnection between the ethnic groups that make up the African Diaspora. The purpose of Pulse is to display all cultures and traditions of the African Diaspora in order to help the MIT and Boston community appreciate how all of these cultures are intertwined. The show will attempts to create awareness of all the positive contributions within the African Diaspora that are not often celebrated. Additionally, it attempts to reveal how much all of these nationalities are connected. We hope to accomplish this theme by exploring visual arts, dance, music, language and literature, and fashion. The acts in the show cross the spectrum of expression, from poetry reading to dance to music, comprising of artists and performers that include, but are not limited to, cultural groups composed of MIT students, MIT faculty, MIT alumni, and the greater Boston community. Also included were creative narrations and visual media gathered from a host of resources in and around the community. The show is always free and open to all people of the MIT community, as well as all other neighboring colleges and universities.
