Africa in Motion: Reception

Thursday,  5:30-7:30PM
The Laboratory at Harvard

Africa in Motion, co-sponsored by the Committee on African Studies and the Du Bois Institute, will both showcase and celebrate Harvard’s enduring commitment to African Studies, and will herald new opportunities for engagements both at the University and with our partners throughout Africa.  Together, the reception on October 21st and the all-day symposium on October 22nd will rethink questions and topics crucial to the understanding of the continent.  Multi-media installations will offer the community interactive opportunities to realize the wide-ranging and robust Africanist initiatives that Harvard is undertaking at the University – in virtually every academic discipline – and with partners across the continent.

Performances by PADAME, the Kuumba singers, as well as the winners of the Africa in Motion Student Art Competition will all be showcased.  Light refreshments will be provided by Teranga, a Senegalese restaurant located in Boston’s South End.
