Film Screening and Discussion | The Manuscripts of Timbuktu
Join us for a screening and discussion of the The Manuscripts of Timbuktu. The documentary film refutes the misperception that Africa lacked vibrant scholarly institutions and advanced written cultures prior to European colonialism. Founded in the 11th century, Timbuktu became a cosmopolitan hub for trans-Saharan trade, science, culture and Islamic scholarship where cultures converged and intellectual life flourished.
