Celebrating Africa House

Jessie Kabwila Kapasula


Professor Nzegwu is scheduled to open two art galleries at her newly renovated three-storey complex called Africa House. I am sure many of us would like to know more about this project so I sat down to interview her one Thursday afternoon on 26 April 2007, at her residence. The interview engaged the many hats that Nzegwu wearsart history, feminist theoretician and African philosopher. It also features her views on safari scholars the effect of western imperialist approaches to engaging Africa and the movement of primitivism in the arts. Nzegwu is a professor of Africana Studies and Philosophy, Interpretation and Culture at Binghamton University.
