Please join us for the next meeting of the Italian Modernities Lecture Series. Italian-Ghanaian filmmaker, scholar and activist Fred Kudjo Kuwornu will present Documenting Black Italy, a conversation on the visual histories of Blackness in Italian culture.

For over a decade, Kuwornu has been involved in narrating and analyzing the experience of the African diaspora in Italy from historical, sociological, and political perspectives. Utilizing examples of visual culture ranging from the 1200s to 2020s, Fred will illuminate conceptions of Blackness underlying contemporary Italian culture.
