In honor of Black History Month, on February 4, Weeksville Heritage Center, The Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCADI) and afriPOP! celebrated at Weeksville the opening of the exhibit, After Afropolitan— a tribute to Africa’s vanguard legacy and a look at unchartered territories of experience and imagination in the African Diaspora.
The exhibition asks, how has “Afropolitan” crystallized aspects of our genius? What aspects of our experiences fall outside the Afropolitan gaze? And, of course what comes next, After Afropolitan?
