Dust + Dignity: The Sights and Sounds of Resistance in Black Music
Aug 10 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Dust + Dignity: The Sights and Sounds of Resistance in Black Music

Join us for a rich discussion revolving around Black music’s sonic and visual response to social injustice throughout the years. Our invited panel guests include Dr. Bruce Campbell Jr., Ph.D Arcadia University, Dr. Lacey Hunter, Ph. D, Rutgers University, and global DJ Skeme Richards of Nostalgia King.

This program will be on ZOOM. Please register here: tinyurl.com/2jz2cabu

Bruce Campbell Jr. created the Dust + Dignity project, an educational experience promoting dialogue and advancing social justice through the exploration of the relationship between music, visual art, and our society. Check out the Dust + Dignity Project here.

Lacey Hunter received her PhD from Drew University. Her dissertation focused on the role of African American religious ideologies on racial constructions. She holds an MA in American History from Rutgers University-Newark and is currently teaching courses on African American Studies and Afro-American History, including History of Hip Hop. She is actively involved in organizations that help urban students transition into college, as well as collaborative programs for “at-risk” college freshman. She is also deeply committed to restructuring historical teaching and encouraging greater literacy rates among students of color.

Skeme Richards is a global DJ, cultural ambassador, foodie, pop culture preserver and creator of Nostalgia King. Nostalgia King spotlights and reviews musical releases from record labels and artists that continue to produce music from an analog aesthetic, on vinyl and in the areas of Funk, Soul, Jazz, international Soundtracks and independent Hip Hop while presenting it from a tastemakers viewpoint to the reader and listening audience. Check out Nostalgia King here.
