Not On Sale








Discover Africa's unsung golden age as Africanist Fran├žois-Xavier Fauvelle reconstructs a history largely left out of our Western textbooks.

In this talk, Fauvelle explores the period from the birth of Islam in the 7th century to the voyages of European exploration in the 15th century, when regions such as present-day Ghana, Nubia, and Zimbabwe became the crossroads of civilizations and African figures played prominent roles in the globalized world of the Middle Ages.

Fauvelle will also discuss his book, The Golden Rhinoceros: Histories of the African Middle Ages, which brings this unsung era to life.
