Organizer/AuthorMax Dashu
Max Dashu of the Suppressed Histories Archives presents a visual talk on Nubian women. Ceramic images of women in the Sudanese neolithic, the Kerma culture and other early classic Nubian civilizations; the priestess-queens of Napata and Meroe (and the breathtaking art in their temples and tombs); the Nubian goddesses Anuket, Satet, and great Auset; the persistence of Nubian matrilineage, village culture, and the long resistance to millennia of slave-raids; and much more.

We have to start at 7 sharp, so be on time if you want to see the most ancient archaeology!

The space is on the first floor of a beautiful white carved-stone building, located four blocks from BART (12th street or Lake Merrit stations).

Suggested donation: $10-20. Wheelchair accessible. All are welcome.

Max Dashu is a woman who has researched global women's history since 1970 and created an archives of over 14,000 images.
