Evening Guest Speaker, Nicole R. Fleetwood

"The Photography of Mass Incarceration"

Thursday, March 07 - 5:30PM to 7:00PM
Hope Ballroom

The talk will examine how contemporary photographic practices shed light on the crisis of mass incarceration and detention. It will discuss a range of photographic projects, including the works of Chandra McCormick and Keith Calhoun, Zora Murff, Bruce Jackson, Deborah Luster, and Jamel Shabazz. It will also include vernacular photographs and images by incarcerated people. Fleetwood will analyze what these sets of images convey about the long duration of black captivity and subjugation and ongoing freedom struggles of marginalized peoples.
