MLK Day, 4pm ET: Building Restorative Justice Across the African Diaspora with Kwame Akoto-Bamfo

mondays at beineckE
registration required

Monday, January 17, 4pm ET, online

A presentation of survivor’s semiotics with the founder of the Nkyinkyim Museum in Nuhalenya Ada, Ghana (image above). Akoto-Bamfo’s Nkyinkyim Installation stands at the entrance of the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama. In 2021, his Blank Slate Monument toured throughout the U.S., from Louisville, to the King Center in Atlanta, among other stops. He spoke at Beinecke Library on Martin Luther King Day 2020, one of our last major on-site events before the pandemic. We are honored by his return, virtually, in 2022 from Ghana. Co-sponsored by Yale’s Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition
