Documenting History, Acknowledging a Legacy: Miami Black Arts Workshop Community Conversation
Please join the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University and several experts to document, celebrate, and honor the incredible legacy of the Miami Black Arts Workshop (MBAW), a Black artistic collective founded on the campus of the University of Miami and established in West Coconut Grove, from 1969-1985. In conjunction with the museum’s exhibition, “Place and Purpose: Art Transformation in Coconut Grove,” this conversation brings four active MBAW artists, Kabuya Pamela Bowens-Saffo, Dinizulu Gene Tinnie, Roland Woods, Jr, and Robert McKnight, to share their stories of artmaking, research, resilience, and community engagement. The panel will be moderated by M. Alexandra Cornelius, Ph.D., Director, Center for Women’s and Gender Studies, Florida International University.
