Our Global Africa: a night of food, music, and performances

Presented by the African Student Association and UMMA

Join African Students Association, Caribbean Students Association, Creatives of Color, and Black Student Union at the University of Michigan Museum of Art for an exciting evening of food and performance in conjunction with the UMMA exhibition Beyond Borders: Global Africa. Performances include spoken word, Amala Dancers, Ambiance, and more! The event is semi-formal with a gallery viewing included. We look forward to sharing our perspective on how African culture, artistic expressions, and traditions are beyond borders, in an event you do not want to miss!

Lead support for Beyond Borders: Global Africa is provided by the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, Michigan Medicine, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the University of Michigan Office of Research, African Studies Center, and Department of Afroamerican and African Studies.  Additional generous support is provided by the University of Michigan CEW+ Frances and Sydney Lewis Visiting Leaders Fund and Susan Ullrich.
