A View from the Forest: The Power of Southern Kuba Initiation Rites and Masks

Join Dr. David Binkley, art historian, for a talk that explores the importance of initiation rites and masks for the Southern Kuba from three perspectives: the significance of the forest as the place where male initiation rites take place; the importance of male authority; and the acquisition of secret knowledge, including mask making.
