Africans in India: From Slaves to Generals and Rulers
Charles B. Wang Center Zodiac Gallery

Curated by Dr. Sylviane A. Diouf of the New York Public Library’s Schomburg-Mellon Humanities Summer Institute and Kenneth X. Robbins, a collector and expert in Indian art, this groundbreaking exhibition retraces the lives and achievements of Africans in the Indian subcontinent from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries.

This exhibition, the first of its kind, features over 100 photographic reproductions of paintings and contemporary photographs documenting the lives and achievements of some of the East African diaspora in India, known as Habshis and Siddis.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with the Mattoo Center for India Studies and supported by the Humanities Institute, the Departments of History and Africana Studies, and the Faculty of Arts,  and Social Sciences at Stony Brook University.
