Ghanaian Emojis–Kente Cloth & Adinkra SymbolsNita
Please join me at this free, fun and interactive “talking fabrics” presentation on Wednesday at the downtown public library! Rochester’s Central Library is celebrating Black History Month by exploring Kente cloth and Adinkra symbols, two Ghanaian fabrics that function as a language.
As Egyptians used hieroglyphics and Millennials use emojis to communicate, Ghanaians use textile weaves and fabric patterns as a visual language to express themselves. Come learn how Ghanaians use Kente and Adinkra in their everyday life to communicate.
Where: Rochester Central Library, Kate Gleason Auditorium, 115 South Ave., Rochester
When: Wed. Feb 13, 2019; 6 – 8 PM
