American Profanations: A lecture by Professor Tavia Nyong’o

American Profanations Poster

Tavia Nyong’o, Professor of African American Studies, American Studies, and Theater Studies at Yale University, will present his research that takes the 1957 MGM film, “Something of Value,” a film that allegorically maps Native North American resistance onto East African anti-colonial resistance, as a starting point to consider the intersection of black and indigenous studies today. The lecture is presented by the Center for Visual Cultures with support from the Anonymous Fund, Theater Studies, and the Departments of Art and Art History.
