      EVENT DETAILS
      Wrapped in Pride: Ghanaian Kente and African American Identity

      Made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities and organized by ExhibitsUSA. Based on an exhibition organized by UCLA Fowler Museum of Cultural History.
      The exhibit is divided into two sections. First, it traces the roots of Kente in Asante and Ewe cultures, in what is now central and eastern Ghana and parts of Togo, and its wide spread use in Africa as garment and ceremonial cloth. Then the exhibit explores Kente as a meaningful document of dress, art, and identity in American culture, specifically within African American communities in the United States. It includes approximately 700 objects, some displayed as individual works or art, and others employed in recreated market environments as found in Ghana and the United States.
