The Reparations Project: Building Community In The Digital Age says
The Frye Art Museum and the Northwest African American Museum (NAAM) have partnered to develop a series of four lectures on the visual culture of the African continent and its diaspora. This series will explore the history and practice of artists of African descent, drawing connections between the African continent and its diaspora as the locus of Africanity. This lecture, presented by Reagan Jackson and Natasha Marin, is the first in the series.

What if you did something meaningful for someone before the end of the year? What if a stranger restored your belief in humanity, if only for a moment, by supporting you and allowing you to claim something you need in a material way?

A discussion between writer and activist Reagan Jackson and conceptual artist Natasha Marin delving into the underpinnings of The Reparations Project, a new social media experiment that involves community building, healing, and self-care. This will be a frank discussion about art, racism, social media, and leveraging privilege.
