African Centered Tour of the Egyptian Wing of the 
       Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY, NY)

Considered one of the "Big Three" museums for Ancient Egyptian Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has one of the largest collections in the world.   Including stelae (used to create "holy water" prior to the Christian era) and the entire Temple of Dendur.  The Temple of Dendur was moved to the MET, block by block, from the Nubian border during the creation of the Aswan High Dam.

Unfortunately, the museum also subtlety subverts the African origins of our Kemetic ancestors.  This tour will provide a general overview of Ancient Kemetic history while re-contextualizing Kemet as an African nation.  Its contributions to world civilization are unparalleled.

We will accomplish 3 objectives on this tour:
1) Develop an intimate portrayal of our ancient ancestors
2) Describe the 5 major periods of Ancient Egyptian History and Art
3) Identify and debunk the museum's subtle portrayal of the Ancient                
Egypt as a non-African nation

Your tour will run approximately 3 hours and will cost $30 for adults and $20 for students.  Please RSVP as soon as possible as limited spaces are available.  Pay via PayPal or by cash or money order on site.  Please meet in
the museum lobby at least 15 minutes prior!
