Most of you will recall that a couple of weeks ago, I was involved in a 2-day conference at the New School here in NYC, titled Remixed And Remastered: Defining And Distributing The Black Image In An Era Of Globalization.
I was a panelist on the Who gets to tell the story? Representation, appropriation and distribution of the Black Image panel, and was joined by scholars Tracyann Williams (moderator), Pearl Bowser, Fabio Parasecoli, and Raquel Gates, as well as director, producer and writer Frances Anne Solomon.
Every panel at the conference was recorded, and have now been made available for viewing online. I've embed the recording of the panel I was on below, which was about an hour long; and, by the way, you can watch the rest of the series via the New School's YouTube channel HERE):
