39. Black Fashion, A Year in Review

Welcome to another episode of Unravel. Today we will be discussing our thoughts about the work scholars have done in illuminating black fashion history this year. We will be highlighting who they are and their work. This episode was inspired by all the wonderful events we were invited to about this topic throughout 2017. We want to share what we learned, but also talk about the future of this subject and its importance.

In the episode we discuss the following events:

Fashioning the Black Body in Bondage and Freedom at The Weeksville Heritage Center

Black Fashion Designers Symposium at The Museum at FIT

Fashion & Justice
