Introduction to Black Hue-manity 101: Imagining Blackness Then and Now

November 10 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

The power of images is strong and enduring. Depictions of African peoples and blackness have changed over time and influence contemporary thinking and action. Since the Enlightenment, Black humanity has been routinely attacked, ridiculed, and questioned, and altogether denied. However, this was not always the case. This multimedia exhibit featuring images, video, and historical testimony coupled with a presentation by Dr. Lasana Kazembe on writers and artists of the Early Classical period, will foster conversation, curiosity, and an open exchange of knowledge on how imagery about Blackness has both changed over time and continues to occupy and animate our social and political imagination. Indianapolis poet Manon Voice will complement the exhibit with a poetic meditation that reflects the theme. A small reception will follow.
