Spring 2022 Lecture Series
This year’s Spring Sciame Lecture Series, themed Radical Black Space, brings together architects, preservationists, planners, artists, and historians of color at a precipitous moment in time.
The ongoing Movement for Black Lives demands that Americans from all walks of life confront racism, white supremacy, white privilege, and their impact on constructed environments, and understand the rich, vital tradition of Black resistance, innovation, and creativity-as-liberatory practice.
Speakers will touch on many questions: How do the places, networks, and things made by Black Americans offer possible emancipatory frameworks for America? How is difference celebrated? What constitutes anti-racist spatial practice? Radical Black Space shows that the Black Radical tradition is alive in art and architecture, and that Black history and study are essential to understanding the present, and shaping the future for us all.
All lectures will be presented via Zoom, are open to the public, and held on Thursdays at 6pm NYC time. Zoom links will be made on the individual event pages as well as on our social media channels.
This book talk is cosponsored by Actar Press and
CCNY’s J. Max Bond Center for Urban Futures.
