FAAAC presents Forever Beautiful: A Storytelling Celebration
Saturday, September 5 | 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. | Facebook Live
Kwame Brathwaite’s photography popularized the political slogan “Black is Beautiful” throughout the late 1950s and 1960s, and it still resonates as powerfully today as it did at the height of the second Harlem Renaissance. To honor the work of Brathwaite, the history of the culture, and the continued importance of the message, join CMA affinity group Friends of African American Arts & Culture (FAAAC) as they bring together Black lovers of art to share their experiences and explore the impact and relevance of Brathwaite’s photography in today’s political and cultural climate.
Free on Facebook Live.
Hosted by FAAAC board member Nancy Tolson, assistant director of African American studies at UofSC. Speakers include Luther Battiste, founding shareholder of Johnson, Toal & Battiste, P.A., national president of the American Board of Trial Advocates, and host of World Class Jazz on WVCD Voorhees College; Michael Dantzler, photographer; Damion Johnson, artist; and Delores Logan, founder and CEO of AllCaregivers, Inc., FAAAC board member.
