I chatted with artist Elizabeth Colomba and Dodie Kazanjian, contributing editor for Vogue and director of Gallery Met at the The Metropolitan Opera. We discussed Colomba's directorial debut, a short film based on the opera Cendrillon for the Gallery Met Shorts series.
I spoke with Charlie Anderle about their experiences as a black femme non-binary chef, the restaurant as a normative institution, code switching, and the transformative power of cooking.
I used images and artficacts from Concord Museum's permanent collection as a point of departure for a discussion on the depictions of free and freed African Americans. This talk was inspired by their "Fresh Goods: Shopping for Clothing in a New England Town, 1750-1900" exhibition.
I presented my research on slavery and fashion at CIADUK's (Costume Institute of the African Diaspora) first biennial conference.
I organized this conference, which included presentations of the work of artists, writers, academics, curators, and other members of the Weeksville community who have devoted themselves to understanding fashion in black communities.
