On Thursday, February 13th, AAMP presents a special conversation between visual artist Adrienne Waheed and Rhea L. Combs, Ph.D., Supervisory Curator of Photography and Film and Director of the Earl W. and Amanda Stafford Center for African American Media Arts at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. This dialogue centers on Waheed’s stunning, self-published book coffee table book, Black Joy and Resistance, which masterfully chronicles Black resistance and celebrates joyous energy and connectivity inherent in Black culture and communities throughout the diaspora.
Copies of Black Joy and Resistance will be available for purchase at the museum during this program. Doors for this event open at 6 p.m. and guests are encouraged to arrive early to view AAMP’s current special exhibition, In Conversation: Visual Meditations on Black Masculinity before attending the program. The program begins promptly at 6:30 p.m.
