Tracing a truly unique and fascinating story of struggles and achievements across a variety of societies, cultures, religions, languages and times, the exhibition serves as a meditative look at images of Africans and people of African descent presented on original coins, banknotes, and stamps made during the past 150 years and tell the story of changing faces and reveals how some countries, over time, have chosen or not chosen to represent themselves both within their borders and internationally as well as beautifully reminding us that in truth, there is no such thing as Black history. There is only history.
