Thread Replay: Work, Hype, & Creative Conjunction: The Black Is King Effect | Live Session from #TheThread by Tastemakers Africa

Stephanie Nnamani, Stephen Papi Ojo, and Ahmed Akasha talk with Cheraé to recognize, embrace, and debate the cultural moment BLACK IS KING has given us: a discussion of the current Black aesthetic by creative perspectives from across the Diaspora.

BLACK IS KING has been an incredible moment for the culture complete with the requisite debates, critiques, and acclaim. It has created an hype cycle around the creatives involved, the black/African aesthetic, ownership, and influence that has significance for those directly involved with the project and those that have working in these spaces for years defining approaches and a narrative that made this moment possible. We'll explore these themes and more in this conversation centered on the artistic process, the hype of recognition, and the conjunction of community in the creative space.

Presented by Tastemakers Africa, The Thread | Conversations Beyond The Return is a monthly-ish series of conversations unpacking the potential for Pan-Africanism in a post-"Year of Return" moment for the culture. Since its inception as an in-person event in Washington, DC The Thread has gone virtual reaching nearly 7,000 people from 50+ countries. On August 23rd, 2020, The Thread Volume 6 brought us conversations focused on Black August.
