On Visions of Black Futurity

6:00 PM – 7:30 PM


In this talk with scholar, artist and producer, Babette Thomas, they explore how Black history, fantasy, and utopia fuels their work–like in their most recent deep dive into the 1960’s Black Art Scene for the Raw Material podcast from SF MOMA. They'll discuss how radio allows them to commune with their artistic predecessors, as well as how using archival materials collapses the space between past, present, and future.

Babette Thomas is a radio producer, artist and PhD student at Yale University in the departments of African-American and American Studies. In their work, they explore how new media (specifically sound media) can be used to tell Black history and Black stories in ways that are tangible, educational and accessible.
