ABOUT THE EVENT
Robert Lehman Distinguished Lecture | Black Grassroots Graffiti and Memorial Transforming From Informal to Formal Museum Spaces
Join CCSU historian, Dr. Dann J. Broyld, in an examination of the history of graffiti as it moved from the grassroots and streets to formal museum galleries. His talk will address the modern quest in several urban centers to have legal public spaces for free-form art. Presented via Zoom, this virtual talk will weave in how the dynamic work of Shantell Martin and how her philosophy of “draw on everything” fits into this conversation.
Dann J. Broyld is an associate professor of African American History and Public History at Central Connecticut State University. He earned his PhD in nineteenth-century United States and African Diaspora history at Howard University. His work focuses on the American-Canadianborderlands and issues of Black identity, migration, and transnational relations as well as oral history, material culture, and museum-community interaction.
