Penny Stamps Speaker Series Special Event: ​Meleko Mokgosi, "Pan-African Pulp"

Entitled "Pan-African Pulp," the exhibition features large-scale panels inspired by African photo novels of the 1960s and ’70s, a mural examining the complexity of blackness, posters from Pan-African movements founded in Detroit and Africa in the 1960s, and stories from Setswana literature.
