Faces of Ghana-Photo Reflections

Main Library

African American Center Exhibit Space - 3rd Floor

100 Larkin St.

Photo exhibit presenting the land and the people of the West African nation of Ghana, presented by Dr. Marcus Lorenzo Penn. The photo series reveals the happiness that many Americans do not see of Africa and the paradox of visual beauty and historical brutality felt at the remnant castles of the West African slave trade. People will see grandmothers, uncles, sisters, cousins and more in the faces showcased. In essence, this exhibit will serve as a place of reunion for families of the Diaspora.
