Tennille Nakimuli Shanae McMillan

 

Name: Tennille Nakimuli Shanae McMillan

 

Friday Late, June 24th: Afropolitans – Victoria and Albert Museum

 

Join Ms Afropolitan for an evening exploring African photography, fashion, style and identity.  The evening will look back to image-makers who captured the excitement, optimism and sense of freedom of post-independence African nations from the 1960s, and forward to a new generation of ‘Afropolitans’, global tastemakers whose sensibilities are rooted in their African identities.  It promises to be a fun and celebratory evening of modern, iconic, African aesthetics, reflecting how Africans living across the continent (and beyond) view themselves and their visual heritage.

All events are free and places designated on a first come, first served basis, unless stipulated otherwise.
Filming and photography will be taking place at this event.
