ACCRA EXHIBTION

spacer

A distinct but related exhibition, Du Bois in Our Time/Accra, premiered in March 2014 at the Nubuke Foundation and the Du Bois Centre, both in Accra, Ghana. This was timed to coincide with Ghana’s Independence Day celebration. Acknowl- edging the breadth of Du Bois’s influence and his role in the Pan-African movement, Du Bois in Our Time/Accra reintroduced Du Bois back into the consciousness of today’s West Africa. By engaging African artists, writers, and scholars in dialogue, the aim was to revitalize the legacy of Du Bois and make it more accessible to a wider audience. Programming included lectures, open discussions, workshops, and an exhibition of contemporary art. Du Bois in Our Time/Accra was organized by Odile Tevie, director of the Nubuke Foundation, with guest curator Tayo Ogunbiyi
