Thanks to our Ngozi and the folks at Society HAE for giving me a heads up on this.  Check it out:

This exhibition seeks to pay tribute to one of the African Diaspora’s
most influential living ancestors as well as critique the complexity of
his persona. Life After Death: A Multi-Media Analysis of the Persona
that Was/Is Fela Anikulapo Kuti
is a visual homage to a musical genius
and perhaps one of contemporary history’s most powerful protest artists.

Also including never before seen photography of Fela in '77 during
FESTAC and at the Shrine with individuals such as Haki Madhubiti shot by
Marilyn Nance.
