Former BLACK BOX artist C. Nicole Mason returns to share the completed version of her newly released memoir, Born Bright: A Young Girl’s Journey from Nothing to Something in America. A conversation with Spelman students about race, class, gender, and sexuality and a book signing follow.
BLACK BOX is a site for play, dialogue, and creative risk taking that encourages artists of all disciplines to engage with others connected to their subject matter. Each program affords the opportunity for cultural producers to share in-progress works on the art and culture of the African Diaspora in front of a live audience for feedback, engagement, and encouragement. It also provides a space for arts enthusiasts to view compelling work from some of the most exciting and thought-provoking artists working today.
This program is organized in partnership with the Ethel Waddell Githii Honors Program, Spelman College.
