When Alisha B. Wormsley created the phrase, “There Are Black People in the Future,” she boldly articulated an “archive of information, histories, and myths that [continued] despite the apocalyptic narrative of Black American culture.”  Join Ozi Uduma, Assistant Curator of Global Contemporary Art, on this tour that looks at how Black artists within UMMA’s collection have used their craft to articulate identity, reflect on Black life globally, examine the stories we fail to tell, and reimagine a new future.

This is one of five themed tours offered as part of UMMA + Chill during the month of February. Each theme will be accompanied by a customized beverage suggestion created by local mixologists.
