Queens, Maidens, Matriarchs: The African Woman in the de Young on Saturday, March 31, 3:30-5pm

African women are honored for many things: for their unending toil; for mothering the next generation and nourishing the group; for upholding tradition and protecting belief. Artists over the centuries have celebrated their beauty and power. This slide lecture presents women of past and present, those who honored tradition and those who are leading the way to equality, freedom and justice.

Please join us for this Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco slide show and lecture in celebration of National Women’s History Month.
