Various Locations
Runs: 2/5 - 3/26
The second annual Black History/Art History lecture and performance series will include events in February and March 2015. This program is guided by expanded and complicated definitions of blackness, offering an opportunity to critically examine Black History Month itself. In what ways has Black History Month changed since 1976? How has the national observance affected institutions and ways of articulating multiple histories? Do we activate the historical significance of the month within our current intellectual communities? Such questions lie beneath the Black History/Art History series, which features artists and scholars whose works emphasize cross-cultural perspectives and interrogate traditional methodologies.
