Dear African Dance & Drum Community,

I am writing to share with you exciting news about an upcoming
religious event at Harvard Divinity School.
Maude Evans, a respected mambo(Vodou priestess) will be conducting a

Vodou service in the Andover Chapel at Harvard University
Friday, April 13, 2007, 7pm-9pm.

This will, to our knowledge, be the first public Vodou service to ever occur at
Harvard University. Please join us in celebrating this occasion!

I am including a fuller description of the event below, in both English
and Kreyol. Out of respect for the bilingual nature of this event, we ask that
it be advertised in both languages, and that the two flyers be posted together.

Please publicize this event widely. I invite you to forward this
notice to anyone who may be interested. I may be contacted for more information.

Warm wishes,
Adam McGee

candidate, masters of theological studies
Harvard Divinity School
Harvard University
