Imagine Africa

What is Africa? It's a broad and important question, and it is something that the folks at the University of Pennsylvania's Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology find fascinating. This website is part of a 12-month project designed to look into the thoughts of visitors to the museum. The museum is also concerned with the thoughts of others who can't make the trip to Philadelphia, and users of this site can chime in with their ideas as well. In the About area, visitors can read about the project and look over its themes, which include Imagine Strength, Imagine Changing, and Imagine Healing. Visitors are encouraged to give feedback on these themes, and curators will take this information into consideration as they think about crafting a new exhibit in response. In the Watch area, visitors can watch different videos, such as a group of Maasai women singing in Kenya and a piece on Nigeria's Benin kingdom. Finally, the Discuss area allows visitors to chime in on questions such as "What role did slavery play in creating America?" and "Is personal appearance an important perspective for examining a culture?"
