two blog posts on the liquid blackness symposium 2014

Artist panel moderator Nettrice Gaskins has written two posts on her blog about the recent liquid blackness symposium.

We were incredibly happy to have Nettrice present her work and moderate the Artist Panel on the second day of the symposium, and this post on her work and its relationship to liquidity as well as this post about the artist panel itself are both valuable contributions to the large project of working through the liquidity of blackness.

See the second issue of liquid blackness to read an interview with Nettrice conducted by Dr. Michele Prettyman Beverly.

liquid blackness first issue released

liquid blackness is proud to announce the publication of our first collection of short essays. This special issue is a response to “L.A. Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema,” the film series liquid blackness co-hosted in Atlanta, Georgia in Fall 2013. This first issue uses “liquid blackness” as a lens to revisit these iconic films and features writing by the liquid blackness coordinator, Alessandra Raengo, editorial board members Michele Prettyman Beverly, Lauren M. Cramer, and Cameron Kunzelman, and liquid blackness contributors, Dorothy Hendricks and Joey Molina.
