Book Launch: Ekow Eshun presents In the Black Fantastic
In conversation with Ricky Tucker

Greenlight welcomes London-based writer and curator Ekow Eshun to Brooklyn to celebrate the launch of his new book In the Black Fantastic, a richly illustrated exploration of Black culture at its most wildly imaginative and artistically ambitious. Exploring works that span photography, painting, sculpture, cinema, graphic arts, music and architecture, Eshun shows how speculative fictions in Black art and culture are boldly reimagining perspectives on race, gender, and identity and celebrates the ways that Black artists draw inspiration from African-originated myths, beliefs, and knowledge systems, confounding the Western dichotomy between the real and unreal, the scientific and the supernatural. Eshun will be joined by writer, educator, activist, and art critic Ricky Tucker (And the Category Is...) for a reading and conversation celebrating Black creative and cultural life, past present and future.
