Migrating Cultures: West Africa and the Caribbean - Thursday 1 December

Manchester Museum
Migrating Cultures: West Africa and the Caribbean
Thursday 1 December
1-2pm

Despite the highly repressive nature of transatlantic slavery and forced migration, enslaved peoples managed to hold onto vital aspects of their West African culture, bringing them to the Caribbean; these cultural traditions are still visibly present in the region today.

Using objects from Manchester Museum’s Living Cultures' West African collection, images and film from the Caribbean, Isabelle Cox will explore cultural migration; looking at how and why certain traditions have continued to endure on both sides of the Atlantic.
