Africa Speaks

Thirty five years ago, the DuSable Museum of African American History opened a new exhibition, entitled Africa Speaks, to showcase the diverse peoples, cultures and countries in Africa, but more importantly to illustrate the link that African Americans have to their ancestral legacy beyond the institution of slavery. Today, DuSable has reinstalled this exhibition under the same title utilizing pieces collected over the past four decades, totaling some 2,000 plus traditional and contemporary African artifacts in the collection. The updated Africa Speaks divides the continent into five regions: North, South, East, Central, and West. Each section is home to varied ethnic groups, every one with different customs and traditions.
