No More, America: Film Screening

Thu - Sun, Oct 25 to Jan 6, 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Location: 

Level 5, Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy St

On Wednesday, July 21, 1773, two graduating seniors at Harvard, Theodore Parsons and Eliphalet Pearson, were summoned before a public audience to debate whether slavery was compatible with “natural law.” No More, America (2017; 14 min.), a film by Peter Galison, reimagines this original debate to include the powerful voice of Phillis Wheatley, an acclaimed poet, then-enslaved, who lived just across the Charles River from the two Harvard students. Her presence serves as an intervention, rejecting the racist rhetoric employed by both sides through excerpts from her published works.

Coomaraswamy became the first curator of Indian art in North America (at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston), an appointment that set in motion the collecting and study of South Asian art at Harvard. Today, the Harvard Art Museums hold a world-renowned collection of Rajput and Mughal paintings from South Asia, a selection of which is currently on view in the installation “Women in South Asian Art.”
