Join MODA and friends for a virtual conversation with the editors of the groundbreaking new book, The Black Experience in Design: Identity, Reflection & Expression.
During this roundtable, editors Penina Acayo Laker, Lesley Ann-Noel, Kelly Walters, and Kareem Collie will talk about how and why they came to create the book, what they hope it will accomplish, and why the world needs it.
The roundtable will be followed by a Q&A moderated by designer, strategist, and podcaster Maurice Cherry, founder of the podcast Revision Path.
The Black Experience in Design: Identity, Reflection & Expression presents the work of six editors and over 70 designers, artists, curators, educators, students, and researchers who represent a wide cross-section of Black diasporic identities and multi-disciplinary practices. Forewords by Emory Douglas and Ruha Benjamin frame the book in a historical and socio-political context, and an Afterword by Eddie Opara offers an intimate, spiritual coda.
