Google Archives Nigerian History In Collaboration With Pan-Atlantic University


Google just announced the first Nigerian archive on Google Cultural Institute that documents photography of early 20th century Nigeria. The archive is owned by the Pan-Atlantic University, making them one of the nearly 400 partners from 52 countries that make up the Cultural Institute.

The Google Cultural Institute aims to preserve the world’s culture and history online by partnering with museums, cultural institutions, and archives all over the world.

The Pan-Atlantic University currently has two exhibitions up:

Birth of the Nigerian Colony visually displays the birth of the colony that eventually became Nigeria after Lord Fredrick Lugard amalgamated the northern and southern protectorates

Colonial Footprints: Lagos, Then and Now shows pictures of Lagos Island between 1914-2014

I must admit I’m a little homesick now. Hey! Now you have material for #TBT
