The Hidden History of Africa Before the Slave Trade

Sat, 12 September 2020 19:00 – 22:00

Black History Studies presents our ‘Sankofa Saturday’ presentation on ‘The Hidden History of Africa Before the Slave Trade’ on Saturday 12th September 2020.
The Hidden History of Africa Before the Slave Trade is a visually stunning presentation that addresses one key question: What history do Black people have before the slave trade started?

This 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.

The book Before the Slave Trade: African World History in Pictures will be on sale on the night.
