Alisha B. Wormsley: Black Women as/and the Living Archive

$ 60

Second printing.

Edited by Tsedaye Makonnen and Jordan Martin. This book is part of a larger project of the same name, curated and organized by interdisciplinary artist Tsedaye Makonnen. Central to Makonnen's inquiry is Children of NAN: Mothership, a film by artist Alisha B. Wormsley that functions as a metaphor for the survival and power of Black women in a dystopic future. Makonnen has organized the publication around four themes: Space, Moving Image, Memory; Collective Memory; Pleasure Memory; and Mama Memory [& Care]. There is newly commissioned writing by Jessica Lanay, Jo Stewart, Ladi’Sasha Jones, and Yona Harvey, documentation of the project’s public programs, as well as an annotated bibliography by Ola Ronke, creator of The Free Black Women's Library. The publication is designed by Rheagen King.
