The History of Black Miami-Dade: a lecture by Nadege Green

Thursday, December 8, 2022 | 6:00 pm–7:00 pm EDT | Free | 20 Cooper Square

About the Event

Fall 2022 NYU Center for Black Visual Culture Distinguished Writer/Community Activist-in-Residence, Nadege Green’s (2005 Writing) work centers the lived experiences of Black people in South Florida and is deeply rooted in history and first-person narratives. Her work aligns strongly with CBVC’s continued support of cultural and artistic missions that center restorative justice and healing for black people across the diaspora.

Green will present her research for her emerging history and storytelling platform Black Miami-Dade, which uses a combination of ethnographic interviews and archival practices to herald the rich, and often ignored, history of Black Miami, especially rendering the lives of Miami’s Black queer populations visible in an upcoming exhibit in 2023.

This event will include time for audience Q&A and is co-sponsored by the Department of Photography & Imaging, NYU Tisch School of the Arts; the 370J Project; and the Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation at NYU. A light reception will follow the lecture.

This lecture is made possible through residency partnership with the The Center for Black Visual Culture at The Institute of African American Affairs at NYU and YoungArts.
