Minorities and Philosophy Movie Night

Minorities and Philosophy Movie Night

View and discuss the documentary "Black Is the Color" (2017) by Jacques Goldstein

Minorities and Philosophy will host a movie night over zoom on March 18th, 5:30 - 7:30pm CST, to watch and discuss the documentary "Black Is the Color" (2017) by Jacques Goldstein.

"Black Is the Color" highlights key moments in the history of African American visual art, from Edmonia Lewis's 1867 sculpture Forever Free, to the work of contemporary artists such as Whitfield Lovell, Kerry James Marshall, Ellen Gallagher, and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

After viewing the one-hour documentary together, we will discuss art, aesthetics, philosophy, minorities, and/or any themes that occurred in the movie, depending on the interests of participants. We will touch on the thoughts of the philosopher Alain Locke, who is mentioned in the movie. For more on Locke's aesthetics, you may want to read this background: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/alain-locke/#Aes (especially Section 5, Aesthetics).
