Description

The African Heritage Classroom was designed to reflect an 18th-century Asante temple courtyard in Ghana which would provide the setting for ceremonial events, learning, and worship. The classroom represents the entire continent of Africa with Yoruba-style door carvings by Nigerian sculptor Lamidi O. Fakeye depicting ancient kingdoms of Africa including Egypt, Nubia, Ethiopia, Benin, Kongo/Angola, Kuba, Mali, and Zimbabwe. Plaster forms in the frieze represent the arts, music, science, languages, literature of Africa. A display case housing artifacts from various African nations and the chalkboard area reflect patos around the courtyard. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationality_Rooms#African_Heritage Will open in a new tab or window
