    Racial Capitalocene: Visual Cultures and Abolitionist Ecologies

    Lecturer: Professor T. J. Demos, University of CA, Santa Cruz

    Virtual event. Open to the public. Registration required.

     

    https://swarthmore.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_sOf3USP1TM6os1yWWhu8Og

    Lecture Overview:

    With reference to three approaches to the experimental aesthetics of abolition ecology—those of Thirza Jean Cuthand, The Otolith Group, and Black Quantum Futurism—this presentation discusses current modelings of radical Indigenous and Afro-futurisms, and worlds-to-come founded upon social justice and environmental flourishing. Where radical imagination meets radical praxis is in the material forces of solidarity, the political form of belonging, more than ever necessary today in the collective battle against international fascisms and global neoliberalisms. While acknowledging the bankruptcy of Eurocentric universalisms, this presentation defends approaches to insurgent political alliance beyond identitarian fragmentation, including within and through political aesthetics of abolition—ultimately of racial and colonial capitalism.

  • Black Music Excellence Through the Ages w/ Richelle Claiborne (View)
    When: Friday, February 26th, 2021 7:00pm - 8:00pm

    Black Music Excellence (BME) is a joyous ride through the history of African-American music across the diaspora. It’s more than a soul revue, more than a gospel concert, more than a night of great jazz…it is one part history lesson, one part testimonial and filled with inspired musical performances and spoken word.  Claiborne tells you her story through music with her soul-stirring vocals, a witty script, and accompanied by some of the best musicians from the Charlottesville, Va area who thrive to bring and understanding of equity, peace and love with each performance.  Claiborne debuted Black Music Excellence Through the Ages  in 2019 to a sold out crowd.  Joining Claiborne on stage are Ti Ames (vocals), Ivan Orr (keyboard), Tucker Rogers (guitar), Bud Bryant (bass) and Rob Hubbard (drums).

    This event will be broadcast via the College’s YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/c/swarthmore
