Afro-Atlantic Histories: Session I: "the afterlife of slavery"
The John Wilmerding Symposium on American Art will gather literary and visual artists to reflect on how art responds to and shapes both official and overlooked narratives wrought by the transatlantic slave trade and its legacies.

Rosana Paulino, artist, educator, and researcher

Cameron Rowland, MacArthur “Genius” Fellow (2019) and artist

Session topic inspired by Saidiya Hartman, "Lose Your Mother: A Journey Along the Atlantic Slave Trade Route Terror" (New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2007).
