Explore the rich tradition of Black art in Brooklyn with a month-long celebration of the work of the African Diaspora.
For its seventh annual Black Artstory month, The Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership has teamed up with Black Gotham Experience to create “Front and Center/ed,” a series of four special programs. Showcasing a gamut of visual and performing arts, the free events will take place every Friday in February.
The month kicks off on Friday, February 1 with moderated discussions on Black Brooklyn history and style at BLDG 92 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The panels, one at 7:30 p.m. and one at 8:45 p.m., include historian Prithi Kanakamedala, Weeksville Heritage Center President and Executive Director Rob Fields, author Constance C.R. White and photographer Barron Claiborne.
