Marcus Garvey
(1887 - 1940)

Marcus Garvey
Marcus Garvey and the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) form a critical link in black America's centuries-long struggle for freedom, justice, and equality. As the leader of the largest organized mass movement in black history and progenitor of the modern "black is beautiful" ideal, Garvey is now best remembered as a champion of the back-to-Africa movement. In his own time he was hailed as a redeemer, a "Black Moses." Though he failed to realize all his objectives, his movement still represents a liberation from the psychological bondage of racial inferiority.

Genocide Monument

Kofi Setordji

Part of the monument

Accra based Kofi Setordji worked two and half years on the Genocide Monument which consists of about 300 pieces. Setordji made a travelling monument from wood, metal, clay, waste materials and paint, that consists of a number of sculpture groups and objects. This artwork that weighs more than a ton, depicts the victims, refugees, politicians, judges and eyewitnesses. The directness of the imagery speaks to the conscience of the viewer. Rows of numbered terracotta faces painfully depict the anonymity of the thousands of victims: the monument was created in memory of the more than 800,000 direct and indirect victims. On the website ( in English and Dutch) the images of the work, information on the monumental project and a biography of Setordji; an infocentre about the Rwanda genocide and other genocides. Genocide Monument is the most recent production of the Virtual Museum of Contemporary African Art- an initiative of foundation Africaserver. www.africaserver.nl

(Institute)

The young Jane Goodall
... Dr. Louis Leakey decided that Jane Goodall was the unique individual he was looking for to begin a study of wild chimpanzees on the shore of Lake Tanganyika. At first, British authorities resisted the idea of a young woman living among wild animals in Africa.

In the summer of 1960, 26-year-old Jane Goodall arrived on the shore of Lake Tanganyika in East Africa to study the area's chimpanzee population. Although it was unheard of for a woman to venture into the wilds of the African forest, the trip meant the fulfillment of Jane Goodall's childhood dream.
