clothing is as diverse as the African continent itself. It cannot be summarized
as Dashiki shirts or print dresses. It is more than that: From the bright
and colourful beadwork worn by the Ndebele people in South Africa to the wide
sleeved robes worn by the Hausa-Fulani in Nigeria. To understand the meanings
and significance of traditional African clothing, and its relationship with
identity we need to retrace the steps of those who walked before us. It was
influenced by a variety of things such as ethnicity, values, beliefs,
migration, colonization and trade. Join Sibonile Chimanikire as she unpacks the
history and importance of traditional African clothing in relation to identity.
