When I was young, the first pieces of art that I held in my hands and admired was African Art. We had a few pieces displayed in our home. I have yet to ask about the history of those pieces and which of my parents collected them.
Now, I have come to realize thousands of pieces of African Art have been removed from Africa, and the world relishes these pieces, but few recognize that this artwork tells our story and can help us to understand more about our history.
African Art has meaning. It tells the history and story of people. We would understand our heritage better if we undertook a study of these neglected evidences of history.
To many untruths and misrepresentations depict us a savages while ancient works survive to suggest otherwise.
