Best museums in Africa

For black people across the diaspora, coming to Africa can be much more than a vacation.

Visitors to the African continent are frequently there to experience the arts, letters, and history in a way that may not be required of other vacations. Museums of all stripes act as collectors and aggregators of heritage, and on the African con...

It’s no surprise that India’s Festival of Colors has caught the eye of the non-Hindu community, with new celebrations popping up around the world every year. Yet there’s more to Holi than engaging friends, family, and strangers in color w...
