"Wrapped in Pride: Ghanaian Kente and African American Identity"
1999-09-12 until 2000-01-02
National Museum of African Art
Washington, DC, USA United States of America

September 12, 1999 - January 2, 2000 Nearly 200 textile art works illustrate the rich diversity of traditional kente cloth, its historical role in African societies, and its growing popularity in the United States. A section on kente in Washington, D.C., explores the many ways African Americans and others have incorporated kente in the home, in worship, in performance, and in celebrations, and includes such items as robes worn by the a capella group Sweet Honey in the Rock and suits worn by former mayor Marion Barry. Another aspect of this exhibition, with the same name, is on view at the National Museum of African Art.
