In collaboration with Creative Time and La Casa Azul Bookstore, El Museo del Barrio presents a roundtable discussion on themes in Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s latest artwork, Black Joy in the Hour of Chaos.
El Museo invites the public to discuss ideas around black joy, #blacklivesmatter, and other related themes in El Café. Performance artist Alicia Grullón and spoken word poet LaTasha Diggs will join Professor Tanya Katerí Hernández, author of Racial Subordination in Latin America: The Role of the State, Customary Law, and The New Civil Rights Response in leading the public in a consideration of these topics. Everyone is invited to participate.
Participants are invited to a reception immediately following the discussion.
