A new series of talks by guest speakers in the creative and cultural world generate debate and space for different thought processes, launching with two ‘in conversations’ with writer and broadcaster Ekow Eshun.
Speakers in the series:
Emory Douglas’s powerful visuals helped define the style of the Black Panther’s newspapers, posters, and pamphlets. His bold illustrations and striking images spoke forcefully to a community ravaged by poverty, police brutality, and poor living conditions and portrayed a populace fighting to assert their rights to equality.
Yinka Shonibare MBE’s works bring together disparate cultural references and material to explore issues around colonialism and post-colonialism within the contemporary context of globalisation, as well as issues of national and racial identity and class and cultural politics.
Further talks to be confirmed soon.
Audio recordings of these events are available in the Stuart Hall Library.
