Author Dan Hicks will talk give a talk on The Brutish Museums: The Benin Bronzes, Colonial Violence and Cultural Restitution on Friday, April 16, at 1 p.m., via Zoom.  "Walk into any European museum today and you will see the curated spoils of Empire. They sit behind plate glass: dignified, tastefully lit. Accompanying pieces of card offer a name, date and place of origin. They do not mention that the objects are all stolen." - excerpt from The Brutish Museums Everyone is welcome to join; register to attend: http://bit.ly/BrutishMuseums
