Museum Week NMAAHC

We end our Museum Week with a bonus visit to the newest addition of the Smithsonian family: The National Museum of African American History and Culture. The doors may have been closed this year, but the museum’s programming never shut down. It was our privilege and pleasure to lend production and post-production services to their virtual experience: Fire and Desire: A Conversation on Black Male Gospel Music Performance. The virtual program was organized around Dr. Alisha Lola Jones’s book Flaming?: The Peculiar Theopolitics of Fire and Desire in Black Male Gospel Performance, and explored the various ways male gospel music performers negotiate identity, both within and beyond Black religious spaces. Whereas in-person events are limited in space, this two-hour event was not. Hundreds of viewers were able to watch and participate during the live run, and thousands more continue to watch on their own time. And if you click on the link below, you can too!
