This recorded lecture is available to view on the Kelsey Museum YouTube channel:

Long histories of colonialism and structural racism have distorted our understanding of the ancient cultures of Africa and diminished their contributions to world history. A confluence of movements toward social justice make this an important moment to reconsider the archaeology and history of ancient Kush, centered in the Nile valley of northern Sudan. In this Fash Talk, Geoff will give highlights from a book project on ancient Kush he is beginning with his Sudanese colleague Sami Elamin.
