ROM apologizes to African‑Canadian community for 'Into the Heart of Africa'
At long last, the Royal Ontario Museum has issued an apology for its exhibition of 1989, Into the Heart of Africa, which reproduced colonial images and narratives and therefore "perpetuated an atmosphere of racism," as the apology states, even if the Museum's intention was to critically examine colonialism. SOSA professor Dr. Afua Cooper was one of the organizers of the African-Canadian community's protests at the time, and spoke to CBC's As it Happens about what the exhibition, the protests, and the apology mean. Listen to her here from 10'45 on.
