Black Joy and Resistance: A Conversation and Signing with Adrienne Waheed

Hammonds House Museum invites you to join us for a conversation and book signing with photographer, Adreinne Waheed. Her book, Black Joy and Resistance, is an unapologetic celebration of Black life, love, joy, resistance, protest and light. This event is held in partnership with Auburn Avenue Research Library.

The book is featured in the March issue of Essence Magazine. Here’s what essence.com has to say:

“HBCU homecomings, family reunions, Black Greek fests and “melanated” summer music festivals all serve as safe spaces for lit, for-us-by-us Black celebration. Even protest demonstrations against various -isms sometimes spontaneously burst into a chorus of Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” when activists blow off steam and exhale—smiles and jubilation erupting in the face of white supremacists’ resistance like a middle finger.

Black Joy and Resistance, a photo collection by Adreinne Waheed, visually surveys both scenes with a perceptive eye that finds commonalities in energy between Brooklyn’s Afropunk fest and the #FeesMustFall student protest movement of Johannesburg.

As a passionate, wandering witness at Brooklyn’s West Indian Day Parade, DanceAfrica and Soul Summit rave-ups, as well as the Bahian carnival of Salvador and the 20th anniversary Million Man March, her camera testifies to Black resiliency and (again and again) how we got over.”

Registration is Required.
