Stargazers of Africa

August 23, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

From the dawn of time, African people have looked to the skies above for inspiration and guidance. Stargazers of Africa is a journey connecting the stars, moon and planets to the people across this great continent—from long ago to the stargazers of today. Experience African tales from the Yoruba people and a Nigerian story about the far away stars. Discover the African Stonehenge and moon calendars made from bones over 40,000 years ago.
