Black Art in the Moment: A Response to Crisis

June 22, 2020
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Online Event Zoom

Join me for a discussion of how Black artists have responded to moments of racial, economic, and ecological crisis with Farah Jasmine Griffin, Chair of the Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies and William B. Ransford Professor of English and Comparative Literature and African-American Studies; Robert O’Meally, Zora Neale Hurston Professor of English and Comparative Literature and the Director of the Center for Jazz Studies; and Kellie Jones, Hans Hofmann Professor of Modern Art. They will provide historical context for understanding the role of the arts in addressing periods of chaos and catastrophe and shed light on the current moment, particularly the devastation of COVID-19 and the emergence of a new period of protest and activism.
