“Africans in India” Exhibit Party
Presented by Museum of African American History: Boston Campus
June 19, 2014
It is a party! Come and experience the sights, sounds, and tastes of India as you view “Africans in India: From Slaves to Generals and Rulers”, the exhibit that is challenging the way we think of one of the oldest civilizations in the world.
Sample exotic aromas and authentic flavors, courtesy of One World Cuisine, and see how drummers connect beats often heard in music from Africa. Collector Kenneth Robbins will share how he and his wife Joyce acquired an impressive collection of objects from the 15th through the 20th centuries, including coins, photographs, playing cards, and toys.
The exhibit allows the Museum to continue the ongoing discussion of freedom rising, while we explore the history of enslavement, migration, and diverse cultural legacies of Africans in the Indian Ocean World. Highlights include pictorial panels from the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, detailed maps of the world's slave trade routes, and unique artifacts dating back to the 1400s.
