sound x color: Afro-Latinidad Artist Salon
Please join us on October 5th at 6:30 for the first event in a new series on black identity and sonic culture, Sound and Color. Filmmaker / hip hop artist Bocafloja and composer / musicologist Prof. Kwami Coleman (Gallatin, NYU) will join for a salon artist talk on Afro-Latinidad. Moderated by Prof. Tao Leigh Goffe (SCA, NYU) and joined by her students as part of "Caribbean Writing, Reggae, Routes," artists will discuss their crafts and how black consciousness in the Latino diaspora flows through the various media and disciplines the artists engage in. From Harlem to Mexico City, Bocafloja and Kwami Coleman will chart the geography and cartography of what Afro-Latinidad means to them. This event is co-sponsored by Africana Studies + CLACS and open to the public.
