Considered by many to be the birthplace of humanity, Africa has a vast history that is largely unrecorded. Photographers Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher spent more than three decades traveling the continent in an effort to change that fact. At the Bowers, Beckwith and Fisher display stunning color photographs and intimate video coverage organized into six different themes: “Coming of Age,” “Courtship and Marriage,” “Beliefs and Worship,” “Masks and Masquerades,” “Royalty and Power” and “Spirits and Ancestors.” Put your own predetermined notions about Africa’s people to rest while you catch an insider’s view of this complex, interesting land.

Tuesdays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: Nov. 15. Continues through April 15, 2008
