Through a Glass Darkly
IMAGINING BLACK RESISTANCE

Tue 18 Sept 2018

LONDON: AUTOGRAPH

£5 / £4

About the Event

What are the real stories behind our traditional heroes? How have European traditions of portraiture informed notions of Black authority?

Join the author S.I. Martin for an interactive study of historical representations of Black leadership and identities.

Illustrated by photographs from Omar Victor Diop's Liberty/Diaspora exhibition, we will travel through an alternative history of Black resistance to enslavement and colonialism.
