2nd FESTAC

Liberation

FESTAC stands for Festival of African Arts and Culture. This arose as part of a larger trend of festivals linking African and African-Derived Peoples in the African Diaspora through international meetings that explored politics and the arts within a larger context mixing education and entertainment. The second FESTAC occurred in Nigeria in 1977. This poster was provided by the artist, Babatunde Folayemi who lived in Tanzania at the same time as David Anthony.
