The Black Image Part 1 of 2

Tue, 3 March 2020 18:30 – 21:00

A very revealing presentation and film which shows how the image of African people has been deliberately altered by Europeans to show negativity. In the 15th century African people were portrayed in European art as noble, sophisticated and intelligent. With the rise of Empire these images were thrown out and replaced with demeaning stereotypes which still inform public opinion via children’s books and Hollywood movies..

Part Two of this event continues on the 10th March and will focus on positive black movies that have been suppressed by the mainstream and where/how to see them.
Admission free if booked via eventbrite. This event will start at 6.30pm and latecomers may not get a seat.You can view our Nzingha lectures at
