kush and egypt debate

" The reason that we are here is that we are attempting to raise people's consciousness"

"One of the reasons we want to do this debate is that [some] early archaeological work has led to a lot of misunderstandings"

Two great African cultures; but where are they today and how have their legacies influenced the modern world ?
How has history portrayed them, and has it been fair in its appraisal ?

To draw out and discuss these issues, two of Birmingham's most engaging authorities on world history debated together in the Library Theatre Auditorium, Chamberlain Square, on the 23rd July 2002.

The Speakers
A life long scholar who spent many years in the Sudan, cultural activist Dr. Roi Kwabena is currently Poet Laureate for Birmingham. Phil Watson is BM&AG's Principle Curator of Human History, who was responsible for the popular Egypt exhibition. Both shared their passion for the past with audience.

"It is fortunate that we have the opportunity to sit here and say that we want to discuss Kush"

"Kush didn't go anywhere; it's here with you"
