VIRTUAL: The Sojourner Project / South Africa • Frequencies of Blackness: A Listening Session

At a moment of transnational racial reckoning, this listening session explores black frequency as a site of possibility. It engages black frequency in multiple forms: as a sonic space that ranges from silence to deafening, dissonant noise; as a register of ecstatic rapture and spirituality; as a temporal feedback loop of memory, repetition, and renewal; as a dynamic relation of call and response, or chorus and verse; as a haptic and kinetic space of contact and connection across the African continent and its various diasporas.

VIRTUAL: Exhibiting Africa: Anthropology, Museums, and the Myths of "Decolonizing"

As museums reimagine how anthropology interprets Africa and “Blackness,” they are wrestling with both the residues of historical race science and the realities of anti-Black racism in America today. For anthropologists working in museums this “decolonizing the museum” approach means balancing anthropology as a science against pseudoscientific notions of Africa and “Blackness” that museums and anthropology helped to visually codify in the popular imagination.

VIRTUAL: Bicycling, Birding, and #BLM across America in a Summer of Chaos

During summer 2020, I undertook a 76-day, ~3800 mile bicycle trip across the United States from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans, encountering extraordinary people, landscapes, and birds as I wheeled my way through towns on the brink of collapse, Native American lands, and vast private ranches. Witnessing people’s reactions to #BlackLivesMatter and other pressing issues taught me about the forces causing division in this country and how we can mend them.
