Transitions in African Culture – A Dialogues Seminar
February 10, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
In collaboration with the African Studies Center
Too often the only news out of Africa is that of a beleaguered continent. The reality is that Africa is a diverse place of vibrant cultures and communities filled with art and music that has had a tremendous impact on world culture. This refreshing Dialogues seminar will focus on two elements of African culture, textiles and music, and explore their dispersion and influence in Africa and the rest of the world.
