Derived from W.E.B. Dubois’s concept of “Double Consciousness”, “Triple Consciousness” speaks more acutely to the experience of black women as both black and American and also female. Through a series of three public dialogs, Triple Consciousness delves into and looks beyond the current representations of Black female identity in mainstream media and culture. Each conversation features a different theme to explore black women on “stage” and in pop-culture, and to reframe black feminism(s) in the 21st Century. Formats and discussants vary for a dynamic conversation with audience participation.
This panel discussion, moderated by playwright and Medger Evers College professor Nina Angela Mercer, examines the ways in which black female identity is both desired and treated with disdain in public space, whether on the stage, in the digital sphere, or on the street. Participants include Reverend Desiree Allen; theater director Charlotte Braithwaite; and Digital Advertising Creative Director at Grey New York, Shannon Washington.
Anthony Rosado analyzes the NYC Cultural Plan in an effort to “preserve the rich, vibrant culture of our city that our ancestors gardened.”
