Presented by Logan Center Exhibitions in partnership with the Chicago Center for Contemporary Theory (3CT).

Drawing on her writings and extensive research on postcoloniality, racism and the work of Pan-Africanist scholars such as Aimé Césaire, post-colonial theorist Françoise Vergés leads a discussion on the origins of pan-Africanism and considers its contemporary articulations in the culture and politics of the African diaspora.  

This event is part of the multiyear research project and public program, The Ties that Bind: Waves of Pan-Africanism in Contemporary Art and Society. The first convening, Returns, presents a series of public programs that takes place at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts from October 13 – 15, and October 19, 2017.
