“Black Visions, Black Voices and the Power of Black Art: AFRICOBRA and Ohio” 

Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to join the Siegal Lifelong Learning Program for a two-session remote program titled “Black Visions, Black Voices and the Power of Black Art: AFRICOBRA and Ohio.” 

The sessions will be held on two Tuesdays—April 9 and April 16—from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Regennia N. Williams, associate curator of African American community partnerships, programs and traveling exhibitions and a Distinguished Scholar of African American History and Culture at the Cleveland History Center of the Western Reserve Historical Society, will lead these sessions.

AFRICOBRA (African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists) helped transform the way that Black artists saw themselves and the societies in which they lived and worked. This program will use illustrated slide presentations, excerpts from oral history interviews, and commentary from artists and social historians to facilitate a discussion about the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s and beyond as seen through the work of Wadsworth Jarrell, Jae Jarrell and Nelson Stevens.

This program is free for CWRU students. Call 216.368.2091 or email lifelonglearning@case.edu for student registration.
