Last month, I returned to my role as a curator – exploring Africans in the Bronx. This blog will explore my process from inception to the role of programming and community engagement. I will join LeRonn Brooks as we explore Africa in the Bronx. Here is my first draft of my curatorial concept:
BRONX / AFRICA: Fashion, Food, Film, Performance and Language will explore Africans in the Bronx through ethnographic lenses focused on Fashion (Fabrics, Textiles, Hair, and Dress); Food (Ingredients, Markets, Tours, and Tastings); Film (Media, Webseries, Comedy and Video); Performance (Comedy, Music, Worship; Poetry, and Plays); Language (Spoken, Written and Symbolic) in an inter-generational series of public and community programs that deal with the concepts of Homeland and Identity.
