African Art, Women, History: The Luba People of Central Africa

Narrated by Dr. Mary Nooter Roberts
Created and Produced by Linda Freeman
Written and Directed by David Irving

In the absence of writing, how does a people record the crucial events of their past? In Africa, as elsewhere, memory sustains the identity of a people.

This documentary is about Luba Art and the relationship between women, art and history. Welcome to the magical world of the Lukasa, a memory board, where kings are born only after their spirits have taken possession of the body of a woman. Then, watch history come alive.
