Museum for African Art & MoCADA present: Views of Africa: Conversations with a Continent & its People

September 21, 2010

In this program series MoCADA and the Museum for African Art have partnered to focus
on the varying ways that Africa has been represented in the U.S. In our increasingly
globalized world, many people and businesses have livelihoods connected to trade,
energy, resource development, assistance, and humanitarian efforts in African regions.
Over the course of ten programs, spanning eight months, a variety of lectures and
discussions will stimulate dialogue about how artists, writers, social entrepreneurs,
and other leaders are challenging and expanding our understanding of what is currently
happening in African countries. What are some of the more common perceptions seen
in the media? How do our differing life experiences perspectives offer alternate
ways of understanding these concerns and suggest possible solutions?
