Event description

Description

Malik Gaines’s recent book, Black Performance on the Outskirts of the Left, articulates the role that black theatricality played in the radical energy of the sixties. It follows the evolution of black identity politics to reveal blackness’s ability to transform contemporary social conditions. Gaines’s conversation with Tavia Nyong'o, Professor of African American Studies, American Studies, and Theater Studies at Yale University, will be followed by a book signing.

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
