Join MODA for a conversation with contributors to the book The Black Experience in Design as they discuss community building as a creative process.
We’ll hear from book contributors whose work demonstrates how art and design can be used as tools for changing lives and communities, including:
Maurice Woods, of Inneract Project, an organization that uses design education to empower marginalized students of color and link them to opportunities to explore design in college, career, and life.
Malene Barnett, a multidisciplinary artist, textile designer and activist, who envisions a modern black experience rooted in the cultural traditions and practices of art in the African diaspora.
Terrence Moline of African American Graphic Designers, a non-traditional, industry, and culture-based collective of African American / Black Creatives with the goal of training and supporting creatives in the social and commercial design industries to be professional and unapologetically Black.
The roundtable will be moderated by designer, strategist, and podcaster Maurice Cherry, founder of the podcast Revision Path.
MODA will take questions from the audience afterward.
Free to attend

Forewords by Emory Douglas and Ruha Benjamin frame the book in a historical and socio-political context, and an Afterword by Eddie Opara offers an intimate, spiritual coda.
