Watch Now: Narkita Gold: Black in Denver 3/17/2021 @ 5PM
This variant is currently sold out.
Artist Narkita Gold’s Black in Denver project features 100 portraits of Black Denver residents as well as accompanying interviews with the subjects of her photographs. The project explores identity and Blackness. In a society where Black people are seen as a monolith, Gold’s work reframes the narrative and gives voice to the power of being one’s self.
For this virtual program, Gold invites five of the project participants to join her for a conversation about the history of slavery and its long-lasting effects on the Black diaspora, anti-black imagery and its implications, and mass media, ending the conversation by talking about the power of authenticity and its relation to love.
With special guests Narkita Gold, Marquis Tate, JaLisa Williams, Solwazi Johnson, Zhalisa Clarke, and Representative Leslie Herod.
Narkita Gold’s work reframes the narrative, gives voice to the power of being one’s self, and inspires the practice of self-inquiry.
