As a complement to Lorna Simpson’s use of Ebony and Jet magazines, this special program will celebrate and investigate the role of these preeminent publications in Black visual culture and beyond. Moderated by art historian and curator Dr. Bridget R. Cooks, this program takes the format of a public seminar and community celebration, inviting contributions in response to the question: What do Ebony and Jet mean to you? A reception and art-making station will be available following the event.
