The Racial Justice Advocacy Forum (RAJF) and the African Foundation for Development (AFFORD) are hosting this webinar focusing on the restitution of items now in the possession of museums, galleries, cathedrals and churches.
These items, which are originally from Africa and the Caribbean, include priceless artefacts and human remains.
This is the latest in a series of RJAF webinars exploring reparations and it will cover:
• What ‘restitution’ means in this context
