Black Design: History, Theory & Practice

We 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.
