Join public art organization, Flux Projects for a virtual discussion with Charmaine Minniefield, currently residing in The Gambia, where she is pursuing her study of the Ring Shout, an African American spiritual practice with roots in West Africa that predate slavery. The Ring Shout figures prominently in Minniefield's work with Flux Projects, "Remembrance as Resistance: Preserving Black Narratives," which honors the over 800 unmarked graves discovered in Oakland Cemetery.
Tune in to hear about Minniefield's extended stay in The Gambia, which has allowed her to explore the origins of these traditions first-hand through indigenous ceremony, celebrations, and materials.
