The John L. Warfield Center for African & African American Studies presents “Blackboard Equations: Race and Textual Representation in the Classroom.” The workshop is hosted by Dr. Moyo Okediji, associate professor of art history in the Department of Art and Art History. Okediji says he will “raise a discussion around my use of railroad coal in the context of color symbolism in the United States, with specific reference to my mural entitled Remembering, as well as explore the tension between the blackboard and the text as a paradigm for representing racial, gender and sexual relationships that sustain discussions and frame learning within the academic classroom.”
