Meditations on Black Masculinity


Live and Learn/The Frances Project is thrilled to welcome three essential young artists to the African American Museum in Philadelphia to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the 15th Amendment, ratified February 3, 1870, with contemporary meditations on Black masculinity. The program includes readings and presentations by poet David Gaines, photographer Felli Maynard, and playwright Momo St. Clair and an engaging discussion on what Frances Harper called, in a letter to John Brown, America's great "element of strength." 

​The event is FREE and open to the public and will take place in the gallery of "In Conversation: Visual Meditations on Black Masculinity," a groundbreaking and wide-ranging photographic exhibition. 

​"Fashion with words your tongues of fire," Frances Harper wrote in her poem "The 15th Amendment." Now those words will be given resonance in our vastly different but strikingly familiar time.
