The Hidden History of Africa Before the Slave Trade

Thu 1st Oct

Marcus Garvey Library in collaboration with Black History Studies at St Ann’s Library presents The Hidden History of Africa Before the Slave Trade.

This is a visually stunning presentation that addresses one key question: what history do black people have before the slave trade started?

The lecture discusses the Empire of Mali, the Yoruba Kingdoms, Medieval Sudan, Medieval Ethiopia and the East African Coast. These civilisations have left behind a splendid array of evidence that is discussed in the lecture.

This evidence includes wonderful artefacts, illuminated manuscripts, and impressive architecture.

A discussion will follow the presentation.
