Make sure that you’ve marked your calendar to attend the presentation Reflections in Black, which will be given by Deborah Willis this Wednesday, April 8, 4pm, at Maxwell Auditorium, The Maxwell School of Syracuse University. There will be a reception right before the talk, at 3:30pm, outside of Maxwell Auditorium.
The presentation, which is free and open to the public, will focus on the African American experience in Syracuse as depicted in photography. Willis will also speak about her collaboration, along with Dawoud Bey, Lonnie Graham, and Carrie Mae Weems, in the project Embracing Eatonville, a photographic survey of the oldest black incorporated town in America.
The lecture is sponsored by the South Side Initiative, Light Work, U.Encounter Grant, and the Onondaga Historical Association.
