yabaimageweb

Do you know Blackness when you see it? This provocative question informs the work of Dr. Yaba Blay, whose (1)ne Drop Project depicts the stories and images of over 60 individuals from around the world, all of whom identify as Black, but none of whom fit the stereotypical “Black box.” Their candid memoirs challenge our understanding of race and identity.

The storytelling event, (1)ne Drop Project Live, on November 10th interweaves history with candid stories from participants in the Project and gives a microphone to living testimonies of diversity. Featuring Danielle Ayers, Perry “Vision” Divirgilio, Zun Lee,Sembene McFarland, and Brandon Stanford.
