Sandwiched In

SANDWICHED IN: Fugitive Art and Testimony: Slave Narratives Then and Now. Slave narratives of the 19th century told the story of enslavement and escape from the perspective of those who had been enslaved. In the 1990s a number of visual artists created art that used literary slave narratives as templates for their work. This lecture by Janet Neary of Hunter College brings together contemporary “visual slave narratives” and classic narratives from the 19th century. This program, which is free and open to the public, is made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities’ Speakers in the Humanities program. 12:10 p.m.
