Join us at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture on Thursday, February 18th as we celebrate Black History Month with the Senegal and Ghana episodes of the Afripedia Series!

Afripedia is a five-part documentary series reshaping the image of Africa offering compelling, intimate stories, told by African visionary artists who are pushing the boundaries of creative self-expressions.

Senegal
Dakar has quickly become one of the most buzzed about cities on the continent, infused by a new sense of creativity that cross-pollinates influences across genres and cultures. In Afripedia- Senegal, meet the new stars of fashion, music, dance, photography, and more.

Ghana
The whispers among those in the know are saying that Accra is the next big hotspot for African cultural production, and Afripedia- Ghana suggests they’re not wrong.

Directors Senay Berhe and Teddy Goitom will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion.
