Bemigho Blankson

Bemigho Blankson is currently a researcher and curator of African folklore at Roots Galleria. The mission of Roots Galleria is to reconnect Africans at home and throughout the diaspora to the beauty of African cultural heritage and roots through historical knowledge. Blankson’s research covers ancient African empires and their impact on the new world, providing a platform for international readers to learn about African history and to foster an understanding and appreciation of African cultural heritage.

Roots Galleria’s collection of African folktales includes cultures from regions across the continent, and have attracted scholars, educators, movie production executives, writers, history curators, traditional rulers, and royals from all parts of the world. Its aim is to build a cohesive African community without barriers. Through Roots Galleria, Blankson’s work has been included in Tate Modern’s Portraits of a Community: A World in Common Project, which will be on display until January 2024.
