Tell me what you wear…. And I will tell you who you are? Third research stay, Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto,
Shortly after I started TexMeroe, I saw on Twitter the beautiful picture of a young Sudanese woman wearing a traditional white tobe and posing for the camera in her university’s garden. Fresh from reading Khartoum at Night, I had recently discovered the primordial role of the tobe for the emancipation of women throughout Sudan’s modern history. So her image really resonated with me. I got in touch with her – oh marvel of social media!
