The History of Black Miami-Dade: rendering black, queer, and elder populations visible

The History of Black Miami-Dade: rendering black, queer, and elder populations visible – a lecture by Nadege Green, Distinguished Writer/Community Activist-in-Residence, Fall 2022

Center for Black Visual Culture (CBVC) Distinguished Writer/Community Activist-in-Residence, Nadege Green’s work centers the lived experiences of Black people in South Florida and is deeply rooted in history and first-person narratives. Her work aligns strongly with CBVC’s continued support of cultural and artistic missions that center restorative justice and healing for black people across the diaspora.

Green will present her research for her emerging history and storytelling platform Black Miami-Dade, which uses a combination of ethnographic interviews and archival practices to herald the rich, and often ignored, history of Black Miami, especially rendering the lives of Miami’s Black queer populations visible in an upcoming exhibit in 2023. Reclaiming archives and insisting that Black narratives are visible and not erased is critical to CBVC/IAAA’s ongoing mission to not only research, document, and celebrate the cultural and intellectual production of the Black diaspora but also to interrogate how various archives and the development of visual technologies affect the construction of representations.

This event will include time for audience Q&A.

Co-sponsored by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, Department of Photography & Imaging, NYU Tisch School of the Arts; the 370J Project; and the Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation at NYU. A light reception will follow the lecture.

Space is limited for the in-person event. RSVP is required. You may RSVP for in-person or virtual attendance by clicking on the following link:
