The Larger Conversation Reclamation: Power, Agency, And The Black Model


Saturday, March 5, 2022, 7:00pm to 9:00pm


Calderwood Hall

Do we each have a say over our bodies and images once they are captured in a portrait, photo, or on a smartphone by another person? Join us for a community conversation that examines the role, cultural relevance, and societal impact of the 19th-century Black model. Hear unique perspectives from Boston's own artists, activists, and advocates, who cross examine issues of race, gender, class and the differences between muse, model, and object.

Join Harold Steward, Chanel Thervil, and Paul Goodnight in conversation with moderator Theo Tyson.
