The article discusses about art historian Robert Harris Thompson' lecture at the Visual Culture Retreat held at Pennsylvania State University from November 7-9, 2003. Thompson, who studies the connections between the arts of Africa, North America, and the Caribbean, presented "New York: Secret African City." A group of participants discussed distinctions between teaching visual culture defined as a hierarchical transferring of predetermined information about visual culture and the ways images shape and control beliefs and attitudes, and a pedagogy of visual culture.
