Progressive Pupil at Black Portraitures “Color of Silence” Conference

Dr. Robin J. Hayes, Creative Director of Progressive Pupil, will share updates about two of our projects at the internationally acclaimed Black Portraitures Conference at Harvard University. This year’s conference, which coalesces artists, activists and scholars together to discuss images of Black bodies in mainstream art, focuses on “The Color of Silence.” Tiphanie Yanique, prize-winning author of Land of Love and Drowning, will join Dr. Hayes on a panel to discuss their television series Fortune Bay. UC Berkeley professor and author Dr. Leigh Raiford will discuss her collaboration with Hayes on their new multi-platform project Inside Exile: Kathleen Neal Cleaver and her Black Panther Family. Dr. Courtney Baker of Occidental College will moderate. The conference is free and open to the public.
