Join us on this private tour of our Africa Galleries and trace the paths of several key objects—from their African makers to the museum—to outline artifacts’ origins and how they arrived in Philadelphia. A Graduate Guide will show you around the gallery and invite you to join the conversation about how this innovative approach not only highlights the incredible histories and diversity of African material culture but also advances a vital, ongoing conversation about museum collections acquired in colonial contexts.
