What can be learned from the dynamics of African and Native American contact in the Americas?

To explore this question, a talk on Wednesday, Nov. 17, from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, examines the shared experiences of kinship, slavery, and creative resistance that shaped the dynamics of African and Native American contact in the Americas. Register via Zoom.

Drawing on data used in the creation of the Smithsonian’s traveling banner exhibit, “IndiVisible: African-Native American Lives in the Americas,” over a century of ethnographic and historical investigations into the dynamic contacts between these two populations will be examined through the experiences of their descendants.
