October is the Black History Month, and Birmingham is full of interesting initiatives, organized by the University, the City Council and The Drum (the national centre for Black British arts and culture). This week I have visited the beautiful Danford Collection of West African Arts and Artefacts, inside the campus (Arts building). I am not a specialist in African art, but I assure you that you can see some striking pieces there (Ibo and Yoruba masks and textiles are my favourite). You can find the entire UOB program of events here. Next Tuesday, I will also participate in a tour exploring Birmingham’s links with the Atlantic Slave Trade, inside the Birmingham Museum. I’ll tell you!
