Haringey Libraries in collaboration with Black History Studies presents: The hidden history of Africa before the slave trade
- Thursday 9 November 2017, 7-9.30pm
'The Hidden History Of Africa Before The Slave Trade' is a visually stunning presentation that addresses one key question: What history do Black people have before the slave trade started?
This lecture discusses the Empire of Mali, the Yoruba Kingdoms, Medieval Sudan, Medieval Ethiopia and the East African Coast. These civilisations have left behind a splendid array of evidence, which is discussed in the lecture, including wonderful artefacts, illuminated manuscripts, and impressive architecture.
