Black Design: History, Theory & Practice

Kortney Ryan ZieglerWe explore what it means to “do” Black Studies in practice-based fields.

As our media-saturated culture exhausts every possible angle of consuming race, a new generation of scholars, activists, and artists has turned to investigating the structuring conditions of how blackness is experienced in everyday life.

Dr. Kortney Ryan Ziegler is an award-winning filmmaker, scholar, and writer, and the first person to be awarded the PhD in African American Studies from Northwestern University. Dr. Ziegler wrote and directed the groundbreaking feature-length documentary STILL BLACK: A Portrait of Black Transmen, which won the Isaac Julien Experimental Award at Queer Black Cinema International Music Festival. Dr. Ziegler is founder of Trans*H4CK, a hub for trans*-created tech and trans*-led startups, and, with Tiffany Mikell, is cofounder of BSMdotCo, an educational technology company, and Appolition.us, a community outreach effort that provides assistance to incarcerated Black people.
