PLEASE READ INFO BEFORE YOU RESERVE YOUR TICKET:

Africa is the origin of humanity and civilization. But it is ALSO where kings and queens BEGAN. Their art and artifacts are important in understanding African rulership and how it both influenced and is different from other cultures' ideas of rulership.

Please join Black Scroll Network History & Tours historian and educator Jamon Jordan, on a tour of the Royal and Dynastic artifacts in the ancient Egyptian and African exhibits at the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA).

This tour will give an IN-DEPTH lesson in African culture and history and how it helps us to understand and interpret the African art and artifacts in the ancient Egyptian and African galleries at the DIA.

We will meet at the John R. entrance of the DIA. The DIA is free for Wayne, Oakland & Macomb County residents, but there is a small fee for the lecture tour. The prices are:

$20 — adult (13 & older)
$15 — children (9-12)
8 yrs old or younger — FREE

Recommended parking is at the DIA parking lot ($7) on John R. between Frederick & Farnsworth. Street parking is FREE on Sundays.

This tour takes place at the Detroit Institute of Arts, but is NOT a tour that is sponsored by or done by the DIA. Neither the tour guide or Black Scroll Network History & Tours are affiliated or employed by the Detroit Institute of Arts. This tour is conducted by a historian of African culture and history that is not employed by the museum.

If you need to contact Jamon Jordan regarding this tour, please email [email protected], or call 313-983-9216
