spent my birthday re-exploring the African exhibits at the Met.

The two exhibits I visited in particular were the “Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas” and “Egyptian Art.” Both were very nice. Check out the pics below:

The problem I have with the Met, is that they separated these two exhibits as if Egypt is not a part of black Africa. All of the stolen artifacts in the “Eyptian Art” exhibit show the ancient Egyptians to be dark-skinned (although the museum has decided to place some non-black figures in the entrance that don’t belong there) just like Africans all over the continent. This is just another example of cultural genocide.Smdh.
