Member Preview Day—Ruth E. Carter: Afrofuturism in Costume Design
Your Museum membership allows you exclusive early access to the ingenious creativity and storytelling of Academy Award–winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter. View ensembles from generation-defining films such as Black Panther, Selma, and Do the Right Thing.
Watch the North Carolina Central University (NCCU) Dance Program perform a contemporary piece honoring the unforgettable designs of Academy Award winner Ruth E. Carter. According to Dr. Kristi Vincent Johnson, director of dance in the Department of Theatre at North Carolina Central University, “The work centers Afrofuturism as a reality beyond African diasporic minds, cultures, and bodily experiences that we are empowered to envision, explore, and manifest.” Performances will be held within the exhibition space in East Building, Level B at 3 pm.
