It was asked as a dress code, among other things, to “elegant, colourful as well as traditional and contemporary African” style, as the transmitter CNN summed up together, had first reported about the incident.

pictures of the Ceremony itself showed the following participants, who had painted their face black, as well as carnival costume wearing types of dresses should a supposedly African-style reflect.

“black-facing is never appropriate”

The Participant Patricia Slack commented via Facebook: “love White, how often must you be reminded that a black painted face is never appropriate, even on a ‘Africa’-themed Party.”

Thereupon, the party organizer came forward and reported on the Celebration of the present African guests who have met this event with Pride. After all, the half the present world the DJs would have been of African origin.

The Museum itself asked by Instagram to apologize: “to fear after the Facebook announcement of the event was that the guests would be guided because of the dress code of clichés.” So we contacted immediately the organizer to adapt his invitation.
