About the Program

Nigerian American scholar, playwright, artist, and performer Funmilola Fagbamila presents a spoken word theater piece that explores and deconstructs black political identity. While demonstrating the deep differences and divides within black communities, this one-woman show also calls into question the partisanship and groupthink that often inform discussions about social justice in these times. Called “timely, brilliant, and necessary” by Angela Davis, The Intersection is a story about how humans navigate difference.

A Q&A follows the performance.

Arrive early to view the exhibitions! Black Is Beautiful: The Photography of Kwame Brathwaite and Fearless Fashion: Rudi Gernreich will be open to ticketholders from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Cocktails and light fare available for purchase.
