CCCADI NOW CELEBRATING ITS 43 ANNIVERSARY &
TWO YEARS IN THE LANDMARK FIREHOUSE
Join the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) on Saturday, June 15th to celebrate the closing of Race, Myth, Art, and Justice exhibition. The exhibition explores intersecting ideas of race, myth, art, and justice through the lens and unique interpretations of twelve inter-generational photographers. Via innovative contemporary art practices, the photographers engage with the premise of “race” as a social construct rooted in myth, while simultaneously interrogating its profound implications and indignities on our 21st-century lives.
CCCADI’s home site is the landmark Firehouse located at 120 East 125th Street in Manhattan. For more info: www.cccadi.org.
The event will feature a special moderated conversation between Race, Myth, Art, and Justice participating artist Deborah Jack and Oneka LaBennett, Associate Professor of Africana Studies at Cornell University. The conversation will be moderated by Grace Aneiza Ali, co-curator, Race, Myth, Art & Justice.
