Held as part of Black History Month, this talk will take a deeper look at the African headdresses on display in the exhibition Headdresses from Around the World, The Antoine de Galbert Collection, with collector and Afromusée founder Guy Mushagalusa Chigoho.

Chief’s headdress, warrior or hunter’s helmet, bridal or ritualistic headwear—learn what these markers of identity, in a variety of forms and patterns, reveal to us about the traditions and know-how of over 80 different peoples from across Africa.

Not to be missed!
