Black Art, Politics and Visibility: “Printed” Challenges for the Black Community in Brazil and the US in Times of Totalitarianism
Luciane Ramos Silva and Nabor Jr, editors of the Afro-Brazilian magazine O Menelick 2Ato, will discuss historical and current relations between Brazilian and American black presses. By discussing the dominant aesthetic and poetic regimes of representation, Luciane and Nabor will propose the black arts as a fundamental channel of critical engagement in contexts of social and political cleavage.
Light refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public.
