> DESCRIPTION
The Sweeney Art Gallery hosts a panel discussion on the history of artists who have appropriated traumatic imagery from stereotyped images of African-Americans in their work and the conflicted responses their work has received from the public. Panelists include artist Mark Steven Greenfield, UCR Assistant Professor of English Vorris Nunley, Ph.D., and Sweeney Assistant Director Shane Shukis, Ph.D. in American and African-American literature. At 7:00 PM The Sweeney Art Gallery will screen Spike Lee’s 2000 film Bamboozled about a modern televised minstrel show featuring black actors donning blackface makeup that unintentionally becomes a national hit.
