We’re on the Money: Bringing New Collectors to Numismatics Through the Black Money Exhibit

Join Associate Professor at Georgia State University Dr. Harcourt Fuller as he delves into the currencies from more than 80 countries in Africa, Europe, and the Americas that illustrate 10,000 years of Black history. He will discuss his traveling exhibition, Black Money: World Currencies Featuring African and African Diasporic History and Cultures and the importance of money—not just as something to spend, but also as a visual source of knowledge about world histories and cultures.

He holds a PhD in International History and an MSc (with Merit) in History of International Relations from the London School of Economics (LSE), in addition to a BA in International Studies and an MA in History from the City University of New York (CUNY).
