Check out this amazing conversation between Carrie Mae Weems and Duke University Professor Mark Anthony Neal from Left of Black. They talk about many of Weems’ iconic series, including the Kitchen Table Series, From Here I Saw What Happened and I Cried, Slow Fade to Black, Constructing History, and her latest project, in collaboration with Social Studies 101, called Operation Activate, a grass roots public art anti-violence intervention in Syracuse, New York. We’d love to hear your thoughts about the interview, and it would be great to hear from people living in Syracuse about how Operation Activate has impacted the community.
