Fall Forum: Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe


Sunday, October 28, 2012


12:00 PM–04:00 PM

The ongoing impact of the European heritage on American society is profound, but many today feel alienated from that history. Scholars will explore ideas tied to the special exhibition Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe.  Panelists include curator Dr. Joaneath Spicer, Princeton University professor Dr. Anthony Appiah, University of London professor Dr. Kate Lowe, and Johns Hopkins University professor Dr. Ben Vinson.  Author and journalist Farai Chideya will moderate.
