Congo Diary: Eslanda Robeson's Second African Journey

Title

Congo Diary: Eslanda Robeson's Second African Journey

Description

This first exhibit charts African American anthropologist and civil rights activist, Eslanda Robeson's travels through colonial Central Africa in 1946. Bringing together sometimes far-flung archival materials, this digital map allows users to visualize black women's travel and mobility as ways of articulating both diaspora and anti-colonial resistance. Ultimately, the goal is to insipire new conversations on the connection between decolonization processes and the making of diaspora.
