The Benin Bronzes

The Benin Bronzes

In this episode Grant teaches us about the Benin Bronzes, thousands of exquisite pieces of art that are not made of bronze, and not in Benin. And to talk about this specific crime of colonialism, we have to talk about the empire it came from, and the shifting dynamic between Europe and the world as capitalism and white supremacy developed side-by-side.   Links!
