Friends Historical Association Fall Lecture
November 13, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The Africa Quaker Archive was established at Friends Theological College in Kaimosi, Kenya, in January 2020.
East African Quakerism has a long and rich history, from 1902 when Quakerism arrived in Kenya, to today, when the continent embraces more than half of the world’s Quakers. The archive’s mission is to gather, document, and preserve key pieces of African Quaker history. Our trio of speakers will discuss the archive’s past, present, and future.
- Woodbrooke PhD student Oscar Lugusa Malande will speak about the development and growth of Quakerism as part of the larger Christendom in the African context.
- Friends Theological College principal Dr. Robert Wafula will speak about the history of Friends Theological College, his vision for the Africa Quaker Archive, and challenges and success thus far.
- Mary Crauderueff, Haverford College Curator of Quaker Collections, who consulted on the planning for the Africa Quaker Archive, will speak about her learnings from the project, as well as reflect on roles and relationships for international partnerships in Quaker archives.
The Annual Meeting for Members will be held following the lecture, and will feature discussion of the recent FHA by-laws revision. All members are asked to attend this important meeting. To see the proposed new by-laws, click here.
