February 14, 2012 – Rebecca Walker and Image Activist Michaela angela Davis conducted a conversation about Walker’s new anthology Black Cool: One Thousand Streams of Blackness. The collection—with essays written by prominent voices and figures such as bell Hooks, Henry Louis Gates, dream Hampton, Staceyann Chin as well as Michaela—explores the origins, aesthetics as well as personal definitions of “black cool.”
The event was part of Ms Davis’s “MAD Free with Michaela angela Davis,” https://www.facebook.com/MADFreeMichaelaAngelaD. MAD Free is “a multi-platform, multi-generational critical community conversation project with revolutionary women whose work and lives serve to liberate the narrow and disinformed image of women. This critical community conversation will also offer unique perspectives on cultural image, beauty and power.”
