As both an activist and the dynamic editor of Negro Digest, Hoyt Fuller stood at the nexus of the Black Arts Movement and the broader black cultural politics of his time. Jonathan Fenderson uses historical snapshots of Fuller’s life and achievements to rethink the period and establish Fuller’s important role in laying the foundation for the movement.

Join us for a discussion about Building the Black Arts Movement between Jonathan Fenderson, Assistant Professor of African and African American studies in Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis, and Monique Bedasse, Associate Professor of History and of African and African American Studies at Washington University.
