A Question of Africa
February 26, 2014, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Skylight Room (9100) The Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Ave., Manhattan, NY

Focusing on the work of writers of the African diaspora, “A Question of Africa” will bring together contemporary writers and artists to read and discuss their work and its contemporary contexts. As disparate members of a far-reaching African diaspora, each artist is invited to consider the ways in which the African continent, its countries and cities, its geographies and spatial imaginaries, its peoples—citizens and cast-offs, its histories, its sonic or visual figurations enter or inform their work and their creative process.

Sponsored by Center for the Humanities and Institute for Research on the African Diaspora in the Americas & the Caribbean
