“Radical Recreation,” a conversation bewteen artist Derrick Adams and historian Alison Rose Jefferson, M.H.C., Ph.D., will explore the theme of water in modern African American history—from segregation to access, from restricted clubs to public bathhouses, pools, and beaches—to the present day. Jefferson selected one of Adams’ work for the cover of her book, Living the California Dream: African American Leisure Sites during the Jim Crow Era. Both will discuss the complexities of the Black lived experience illustrated in her book and his art. This live, pay-as-you-wish event will take place on Zoom.
