Join Met curator Alisa LaGamma for a conversation with Manthia Diawara, a writer, filmmaker, and leading scholar of the African diaspora, presented in conjunction with the exhibition Sahel: Art and Empires on the Shores of the Sahara. Explore the tensions between West Africa's traditions and modernity as LaGamma and Diawara draw from the exhibition and from one of Diawara's signature texts, In Search of Africa, which was shaped by his formative experiences in Guinea, Mali, and Senegal.
