Ruth Ketterer Harris Lecture: Dr. Henry J. Drewal
Wednesday, November 13, 2019
2235 Nancy Nicholas Hall
This presentation invites the audience to come to its “sense-abilities” in its engagements with the arts. People feel and think with their “body-mind,” an idea whose universal relevance Dr. Drewal explores by way of the arts of the Yoruba in West Africa. The lecture will be preceded by an opening performance by an Egungun ensemble and followed by a reception featuring music by the Afro-Peruvian group Golpe Tierra and West African cuisine from Les Délices de Awa.
