Discussion Series: Triple Consciousness: “Body Rock”

Saturday, October 18, 2014

2–2 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

In this three-part series, guest scholars, educators, artists, writers, activists, and cultural workers engage in public dialogues exploring themes of black female identity in mainstream culture.

The first conversation examines how the black female body is objectified in public arenas, whether on the stage, in the digital sphere, or on the street. The discussion is moderated by Toni Blackman, artist, activist, and U.S. State Department Hip-Hop Ambassador, and includes Reverend Desiree Allen, theater director Charlotte Braithwaite, composer and performer Karma Mayet Johnson, and Shannon Washington, co-founder and Digital and Advertising Creative Director of Parlour Magazine.

Free with Museum admission. Seating is first-come, first-served. Watch the conversation live.

Co-presented by MAPP International Productions and 651 ARTS; curated by Ebony Noelle Golden.
