Joshua Rashaad McFadden, an acclaimed artist and Assistant Professor of Photography, shares his decade-long journey of creating poignant photographic narratives in the wake of Trayvon Martin's unjust murder and the countless instances of police brutality resulting in the unjust killings of Black individuals, as well as the murders of Black trans women, since then. His photography unveils the complex dynamics of grief within a community living in perpetual mourning, a state intensified by systemic injustices and historical racialization. McFadden brings to light the often overlooked narratives of Black life and the continuous pursuit of equality through his works, which serve as emotional and historical touchstones. Engage in this critical discourse as McFadden reveals the hidden narratives of grief within the Black community and their unyielding struggle for justice and freedom.

After the talk, there will be a 30 minute discussion moderated by Reenah Golden, Founder and CEO/Artistic Director of The Avenue Blackbox Theatre.
