Love Songs within Africa and the African Diaspora
February 19, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pmFree
Join the UF Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere, the A. Quinn Jones Museum, and the City of Gainesville on Saturday, February 19, to celebrate Black History Month for two events that spotlight links between Africa and the African Diaspora.
Throughout Africa and the African Diaspora, Black people have expressed love in many forms. From speaking to their loved ones, to piecing their memories of their homeland in their diasporic locations, to paying their homage to their ancestors, these complex threads of knowledge production have shaped identities and influenced traditional practices. This discussion moderated by Imani Mosley (University of Florida) will attempt to unpack some of these layers filled with local or global experiences with our invited speakers on Saturday, February 19, from 1:00 pm to 2: 30 pm EDT, on Zoom.
Community members are welcome to watch this conversation in-person at the A. Quinn Jones Museum (1013 NW 7th Avenue). For the safety of staff and attendees, masks are expected.
