CLS has worked with “Decolonising the Archive” to produce the Grenada Revolution Archive. We are pleased to have Connie at our November on-line meeting to explain more about their work and how it can be relevant in the current circumstances.

What does the Pan-African archive look like? Sound Like? Feel like? Where does it begin and where are its limits? How is the archive expressed within our own cultural frameworks? Our work explores these questions. Our exploration is creating something beautiful.  We are changing our narrative. History is healing. We cannot decolonise what was never ours to begin with – but we can always create. When we face the past we understand the present. In understanding the present, we shape our future.

“Decolonising the Archive” are currently having a Go Fund Me titled Black Arts Movements, A return to Ghana’s Theatre Archives. This will support the financing of a digital platform between University of Accra and DTA to facilitate an engagement/ sharing of  their archives in highlighting the work Kwame Nkrumah did around culture and engaging those within the diaspora with this content in a creative way.
