Who We Are

Movimiento Cultural, Pop-Ups on the NH Green, September 2018.jpg

Movimiento Cultural Afro-Continental (MCAC), Inc., is a cultural, arts and community based organization. Our mission is to educate people across Connecticut about Puerto Rico’s rich African-based folklore, music, dance, and other art forms, especially the Bomba, which is the oldest Puerto Rican dance and music style rooted in resistance and dating back to the days of slavery. 


The goal is to build and foster racial tolerance, relationships, alliances, and cultural awareness among community groups.  MCAC's group leaders are highly respected cultural workers who have engaged in this art form for decades.
