Bamako Chic: Threads of Power, Color and Culture
Maureen Gosling, Maxine Downs
Interweaving the personal stories of five cloth dyers, BAMAKO CHIC tells the little known story of self-empowered Malian women whose artistic creativity became a force for alleviating poverty and affirming identity in post-colonial West Africa. Through its vibrant mix of compelling characters, vivid textile art and the challenges of daily life, BAMAKO CHIC will enrich American perceptions of Africa—a continent more often portrayed in terms of its political and public health tragedies.
