MansA: Bridging Afro-Diasporic Heritage through Innovation

Mar 11, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

In the aftermath of WWI, France became a haven for the Black diaspora. Intellectuals, students, and artists from Africa, America, and the Caribbean gathered in the little-known Nardal Sisters’ salon, sparking a movement of profound cultural and intellectual exchange.

Fast forward to 2025, discover how MansA, Maison des Mondes Africains in Paris, will emerge to reignite this heritage by highlighting the production of art and ideas from Afro-diasporic territories. Witness how these interactions enrich global culture and foster a reimagined socio-political dialogue.
