Black Portraitures IV: The Color of Silence will take place fifteen years after we convened an initial colloquium at Harvard on African American art. Then, we were interested in formalizing a discipline. Now, that discipline is thriving, and that first colloquium has grown over the years into the international conference series, Black Portraitures, attracting hundreds of scholars, artists, and activists from around the world. We look forward to reconvening in Cambridge to continue the conversation.
Please note: Registration is free and open to the public, but seating at each event will be on a first come/first served basis. A detailed schedule of events will be made available soon.
