East Building, Level B Atrium
Join North Carolina–based artist Endia Beal in a discussion of fashion and power as they relate to the revolutionary Ebony Fashion Fair. Far more than a display of fabulous clothes, the Ebony Fashion Fair offered black women a vision of what they could wear and, ultimately, who they could be. “Bespoke” events are made-to-order conversations facilitated by special guest speakers. Beal is known for her photographic narratives and video testimonies that examine the stories of marginalized communities and individuals. She is director of Diggs Gallery at Winston-Salem State University and associate professor of art.
