African Voices - Nile to the Niger, S1

with Marianne LoGerfo

Class Description

African Voices from the Nile to the Niger, S1 When sacred masks parade in city streets, when storytellers sing of famous heroes, when activists shout the name of a Nubian pharaoh, then the voice of early Africa rings out again. We too will hear it as we sail with Egypt’s African conqueror, discover Ethiopia’s claim to the Ark of the Covenant, travel west to empires won and lost by arms and magic, meet history's richest man, and revel in some of the world’s most stunning art and architecture. In winter and spring of 2024, we’ll explore the cultural history of slavery, colonialism and independence, and include communities in Central, South, and East Africa. All three classes are companion courses to Bill Taylor’s History of Africa class. Please borrow or buy the Revised Edition of Sundiata: An Epic of Old Mali by D.T. Niane. A dozen or so pages of additional reading will be sent by email. Tuesdays, 11:00 – 12:30 In Person: Youth Room Class Limit: 50 Also offered on Zoom on Thursdays, 10:30 to 12:00.
