The African Diaspora in the Indian Ocean World

A Couple in Madagascar, NYPL

The New York Public Library has an online exhibition about African Diaspora throughout the Indian Ocean World, including East Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, the Persian Gulf, South Asia, and farther outlying areas. In addition to contextual essays describing each geographic area, the online exhibition has great image content from the NYPL and other museums and cultural institutions. The images include both historical representations from books and artworks as well as recent photographs, and the website also presents maps and multimedia videos.
