Lonnie Holley & Mourning [A] BLKstar

Born in Jim Crow-era Birmingham, Alabama in 1950, Lonnie Holley was the seventh of 27 children—and at age four was taken from his mother and traded for a bottle of whiskey (Bloom). He fled abusive foster parents, was hit by a car (and declared brain dead) and was later sent to Alabama Industrial School for Negro Children—a “slave camp” by any other name (Missick). Holley’s work, born out of struggle, hardship—and more importantly, out of furious curiosity and biological necessity—manifests itself in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, performance, filmmaking, and music.

How should societies decide which elements should become obsolete, and which are crucial to preserve? Join our Session with Dr.

The Bookshop of Black Queer Diaspora: On the Contents of Rotimi Fani-Kayode’s Trunk

About this program
In recognition of Worlds AIDS Day on December 1, 2023, this talk will examine the history of neoliberalism and neocolonialism in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States as well as the history of Black queer art and activism through a series of visits to a make-believe Black queer bookshop and gallery. While the visits are fictional, the objects in the bookshop and their histories are real. The trunk owned by the Nigerian-born British photographer Rotimi Fani-Kayode (1955–1989) will be a focus of this talk.
