Lecture, "The Blood of Christians: Phillis Wheatley Peters and White Christianity" with Professor Kim Coles, 10AM:
A zine, short for “magazine,” is a small-circulation self-published work of images and text, usually reproduced on a copy machine. Zines have been a significant medium of communication for fan clubs, artists, and subcultures alike, presenting the opportunity of self-expression for anyone who has access to scissors and paper. Additionally, zines provide an accessible avenue for activists to express personal and political views.
This one-day symposium will consider representations of race in performance in connection to the work of visual artist Kara Walker, whose exhibition “Back of Hand” will be on display at the Athenaeum. Taking Walker as a departure point, invited speakers will address themes related to rethinking Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, satire, stereotypes, gender, and identity.
Mark the end of "Georgia On My Mind: Finding Belonging in Music History" with a festive reception including drinks, hors d'oeuvres, holiday music, and a final look at the exhibit!
This event is free and open to the public. Free parking for off-campus visitors is available in the Hull Street Deck. For more information, contact Jess Grant at firstname.lastname@example.org, 706-542-6367.
