More Info

Using books, personal narratives, ephemera, imagery, and other tools as fuel to “see” anew, Speculative Histories will guide participants through imaginative exercises intended to ignite creative ways to read what is there and build what is not there, thus weaving a more complex and complete historical view of African-American and collective American life.

Jillian Walker is an award-winning artist and cultural leader with a passion for creating seismic cultural shifts. Named “one of New York City’s most exciting playwrights” by the Bushwick Starr in 2016, her latest work, SKiNFoLK: An American Show, appeared in the 2017 ANT Fest (aka All New Talent Festival) at Ars Nova. Jillian is the recipient of the 2017-18 UMS Education and Community Engagement Research Residency to develop her new play, Tignon.

This event is a partnership with UMS and is in association with the No Safety Net theater series.
