from Studio Museum of Harlem website: “How does Black art and music inspire activism? Despite its power, why has so much of Black cultural history been hidden or forgotten? How is that history being recovered?
Join us for Recovering Black History, a conversation featuring multifaceted Tony and Grammy Award-winning and Academy and Emmy Award-nominated performer Leslie Odom, Jr.; DJ, producer, and member of The Roots, Questlove (neé, Ahmir Thompson); and award-winning author and editor Dr. Jessica B. Harris.
Moderated by The Bass Museum of Art’s Curator of Public Engagement, Tom Healy, the group will explore how their recent works champion and preserve invaluable and deeply meaningful Black narratives. The program will be introduced by Silvia Karman Cubiñá, Executive Director & Chief Curator of The Bass, and Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem.
This special event is presented in partnership with The Bass Museum of Art and their Curator Culture program series. The program will be available on The Bass Museum of Art’s Youtube page as well as this event page.”
