The Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture in collaboration with the Department of Portuguese hosted Carlos Wahnon Veiga, Ambassador of Cape Verde to the United States on Friday, April 7, 2017 at 2:30 pm in the Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture. Faculty, staff and students welcomed Ambassador Veiga and he was very excited to talk about his homeland and the Portuguese language.

We presented him with two books from our collection at Tagus Press: Portuguese Literary & Culture Studies (PLCS 8); Cape Verde Language, Literature and Music and Return Flights by Jarita Davis. 

The Ambassador was then honored at a reception hosted by the Cape Verdean Student Association and UMD students where one of the many treats was a performance of a Cape Verdean traditional dance by the Cape Verdean Student Association Dance Team. The reception was sponsored by the Chancellor's Office, Academic Affairs, BH4S by students, faculty, staff and community members.
