Episode Info:

We are living in a time where pro-blackness is popular. Long gone are the days where blackness was at the fringes of popular culture, the black aesthetic is at the front and center of the cultural zeitgeist. We should revel in this moment, but also take note of the problematic issues that have risen as a result of it.This week we sat down with Esther Orudiakumo, a Nigerian-American who has a passion for story-telling capabilities of black diasporic art. We discussed how hyper visibility causes some black artists to perform blackness and whether or not anything's changed as a result of these performances. We also touch on the barriers to access for minority groups within the art world as well as how we should respond to the sale of black trauma.
