Writer and curator Kimberly Drew and New York Times Magazine culture writer Jenna Wortham celebrate their new book asking: What does it mean to be Black and alive right now?

What does it mean to be Black and alive right now? To celebrate the launch of their new book collaboration, writer, curator, and activist Kimberly Drew and New York Times Magazine culture writer Jenna Wortham are joined by activist Raquel Willis to dissect this very question. Black Futures is a collection of work—featuring images, photos, essays, memes, dialogues, recipeAs, tweets, poetry, and more—that tells the story of the radical, imaginative, provocative, and gorgeous world that Black creators are bringing forth today. This evening also features artist Naima Green, who will share some of her visual work, and join the discussion about this exciting new archive of collective memory and exuberant testimony, a luminous map to navigate an opaque and disorienting present, and an infinite geography of possible futures.

This event will include ASL interpretation and Closed Captioning.

A portion of the ticket revenue from this event will be split between BAM and the Campaign Against Hunger.
