Event description

Description

The Brooklyn Museum and Aperture Foundation invite you to celebrate black men’s style as a form of personal politics with a night of fashion, film, and music, organized in honor of author Shantrelle P. Lewis’s new book, Dandy Lion: The Black Dandy and Street Style.

With programs activating both our performance spaces and the Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern exhibition galleries, this evening celebrates the art and style of black dandies, men of African descent who use fashion to define and inhabit a proud, radically independent public persona. Featuring:


  • Shantrelle P. Lewis, author and curator
  • Darnell Moore, Editor-at-Large, Interactive One
  • Ignacio Quiles, Haberdasher, QP & Monty
  • Abiola Oke, CEO, Okayafrica
  • Discussion moderated by Rashid Shabazz, VP of Communications, Campaign for Black Male Achievement.

To receive the Member discount code, email us at membership@brooklynmuseum.org with your full name and Membership ID. Supported by the campaign for Black Male Achievement.
