A Special Panel Honoring the 50th Anniversary of Black Studies in the Bay
Black music - of all genres, styles, eras, and origins - has always been about freedom. From the institutional dawn of Black Studies through now, black aesthetic traditions have helped ensure that the very framing of Black Studies and the scholarship produced therein remain grounded in the project of freedom.
Join us for an all-star panel celebrating the freedom work of Black Arts and 50 years of Black Studies in the Bay!
Panelists include legendary musicians and cultural critics: Greg Tate, Shelley Nicole, Andre LaSalle and Vernon Reid
Co-sponsored by Stanford AAAS, San Francisco State University Department of Black Studies, the Institute for Diversity in the Arts, the Committee on Black Performing Arts and the Program in Writing and Rhetoric
