(1)NE DROP: Fact, Fiction, or Fate?
Start Date: 2/4/2013Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 2/4/2013End Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description
Africana Studies and the Office of Equality & Diversity present (1)NE DROP: Fact, Fiction, or Fate? featuring Dr. Yaba Blay, artistic director of the (1)NE DROP PROJECT and assistant teaching professor of Africana Studies, Drexel University. Dr. Yaba’s work with (1)NE DROP is currently being featured as part of CNN’s documentary “Who is Black in America?”

This event will explore what Blackness is and what Blackness looks like. On the whole, the project seeks to raise social awareness and spark community dialogue about the complexities of Blackness as both an identity and a lived reality.

(1)NE DROP literally explores the “other” faces of Blackness—those who may not immediately be recognized, accepted or embraced as “Black” in our visually racialized society. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information about the (1)NE DROP PROJECT, please visit http://1nedrop.com.

Gallery Reception: 5:00 - 5:45pm
Lecture: 5:45 - 7:00pm
This free event is co-sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences, the Office of Equality & Diversity, and Africana Studies.
