In this virtual educator workshop, we will examine primary sources from the Schomburg Center to explore the ways that African Americans in the Black Power Era utilized fashion to disrupt historically entrenched anti-black standards of beauty and imagine a new liberatory politics for Black style.

Participants will get a sneak peak of curriculum in development and receive advanced copies of related materials to use in the classroom.

“Politicians, Priests, and psychiatrists often face the same problem: how to find the most rapid and permanent means of changing a man’s belief…The problem of the doctor and his nervously ill patient, and that of the religious leader who sets out to gain and hold new converts, has now become the problem of whole groups of nations, who wish not only to confirm certain political beliefs within their boundaries, but to proselytize the outside world.” – William Sargant “Battle of the Mind”
