From the Brooklyn Museum:
The Brooklyn Museum and Aperture Foundation invite you to celebrate black men’s style as a form of personal politics with a night of fashion, film, and music, organized in honor of author Shantrelle P. Lewis’s new book, Dandy Lion: The Black Dandy and Street Style. With programs activating both our performance spaces and the Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern exhibition galleries, this evening celebrates the art and style of black dandies, men of African descent who use fashion to define and inhabit a proud, radically independent public persona. Discussion moderated by Rashid Shabazz, VP of Communications, Campaign for Black Male Achievement.
- Shantrelle P. Lewis, author and curator
- Darnell Moore, Editor-at-Large, Interactive One
- Ignacio Quiles, Haberdasher, QP & Monty
- Abiola Oke, CEO, Okayafrica.
Supported by the Campaign for Black Male Achievement.
