BY STACEY ROBINSON
@ VOL 16 ON APR 14, 2016

"The work becomes a conversation about class, race, gender and appropriation."

In Building Afrotopia from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, artist Stacey Robinson illustrates how speculating black futures became paramount in his artistic practice as a response to the global displacement of Black and Indigenous people. Robinson shares recent work, beginning with his current Pan-African flag series, representing nations where Black and Indigenous populations are controlled by extreme measures. Robinson then shares works from an in-progress book, 100 Afrofuturists Practitioners, depicting people building future spaces where Black peace exists using S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art(s), and Math). Lastly, Robinson presents works inspired by the past Black Renaissance speculative Black Futures, with Afrofuturist digital collages inspired by Romare Bearden, James Denmark, Manzel Bowman, and other past and contemporary mixed media collage artists.

Title: 1968 – The Year that Shattered Akron

BY DAVE LIEBERTH
@ VOL 10 ON FEB 09, 2018

Akron has been having the conversation on race since 1851. Few young people are aware that following the assassination of Martin Luther King in 1968, Akron experienced the violence that infected so many American cities – disillusioned young black men rioting, attacking the businesses of white merchants, confronting police. In Akron, a thousand National Guard troops quelled the disturbances after 6 nights of rioting. Black leaders came together to respond. A commission was formed to assess the reasons for the violence. Dave Lieberth offers a thorough overview of the mayhem and discrimination in Akron in 1968.
