Join us for a 3-part lecture series on Thursday evenings in February on African Diaspora Photography with California College of the Arts Professor Makeda Best.
Discussions will introduce audiences to key African American photographers, photographers of the African diaspora, and their work. Though thematically organized, these will be active discussions in which the attendees will be encouraged to discuss and respond to works presented throughout the core lecture presentation. A short bibliography will be available for interested attendees for further reading and exploration. Students will gain both an understanding of the history of African American photography and photography of the African diaspora, and a general introduction to the history of photography.
