ABOUT THE SCHOMBURG LITERARY FESTIVAL

Reading the African Diaspora expands our long tradition of championing authors of African descent from across the globe and publications that celebrate Black history and culture. The inaugural day-long book festival has been reconfigured as a virtual festival taking place over six days. We will feature readings, panel discussions, book selling and more for all ages, from prose to poetry, comic books to young adult novels, fiction and non-fiction. Find out more, here.


ABOUT DERRICK ADAMS

Derrick Adams is a Baltimore-born, Brooklyn, New York-based artist whose critically admired work spans painting, collage, sculpture, performance, video, and sound installations. His multidisciplinary practice engages the ways in which individuals’ ideals, aspirations, and personae become attached to specific objects, colors, textures, symbols, and ideologies. His work probes the influence of popular culture on the formation of self-image, and the relationship between man and monument as they coexist and embody one another. Adams is also deeply immersed in questions of how African American experiences intersect with art history, American iconography, and consumerism. Most notably in his Floater series, he portrays Black Americans at leisure, positing that respite itself is a political act when embraced by black communities. The radicality of this position has materialized in Adams’ work across his Deconstruction Worker, Figure in the Urban Landscape, and Beauty World series.
