Seasonal Special Happenings

Power Play

When: Wed., June 24 2015

AFRICOBRA was a socio-politically motivated art movement during the height of the Civil Rights Movement in and around Chicago. These African American artists united in an effort to affirm and uplift the black community, effecting positive change through imagery and artwork. In conjunction with MOCA Cleveland’s Summer 2015 Exhibitions, the museum hosts a special film screening and panel discussion at 7 p.m. today. AFRICOBRA: Power, Politics + Pride begins with a screening of the documentary, AFRICOBRA: Art for the People, followed by a panel discussion moderated by Ideaastream’s Dee Perry with Jae and Wadsworth Jarrell (two of the movement’s founders, who now reside in Cleveland), Gerald Williams (an AFRICOBRA founding member) and Carolyn Lawrence (an AFRICOBRA artist). A collection of Jae Jarrell’s work is featured in MOCA’s new exhibition, How to Remain Human. Free. (Usmani)
