Gallery Night: Magnificent Africa

When: Fri., Oct. 5, 6 p.m. 2012

Magnificent Africa is a pictorial history of the beginning of man, the beauty and grandeur of the African continent, and a celebration of African genius. Through a series of nineteen large, colorful panels, the story of African migration and trade routes, classical civilizations and great empires, ancient writings, scholarship in math and sciences, and excellence in the arts - from textile making to architecture - is told. It brings to light why a continent so rich in natural resources was admired and desired by many, and why its people, skilled craftsmen and women, became valuable to the New World.
