Yorùbá people liken beads to children with the saying ìlẹ̀kẹ̀ l’ọmọ – “beads are like children, our most precious possession.” Beads embellish crowns, garments, and bodies to evoke status, wealth, protection, and good fortune. Inspired by this and other African and global traditions, Joyce J. Scott transforms ancient beaded story-telling with ever-inventive newness, humor, serious playfulness, and power. Lecture presented by Dr. Henry John Drewal, Evjue-Bascom Professor Emeritus of Art History and Afro-American Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
