Black Rhythm Happening: A Roundtable
October 30 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Virtual event: Once the event starts you can view the live video on our website or YouTube channel.
Join us for a roundtable discussion, “Black Rhythm Happening,” with Michael Gillespie (City College of New York), Ashley Clark (Film Programmer at Brooklyn Academy of Music), Lauren Cramer (University of Toronto), and Yasmina Price (Phd candidate at Yale). As a critical mass, this is a gathering of scholars devoted to thinking about blackness and cinema. The collective work concentrates on the aesthetic, historiographic, and political capacities of the idea of black film. With an emphasis on the formal and the cultural, the work of the group will entail brief presentations followed by a group discussion. Together the roundtable will consider the nuances and complexities of black film with attention to the past, present, and future.
