In this episode, edna bonhomme spoke with Natasha Marin, curator of "Black Imagination: Black Voices on Black Futures" (2020 McSweeney’s).
Natasha Marin (NONWHITEWORKS) is an antiracism consultant based in Seattle, specializing in communications, community building, and digital engagement. Marin is also the curator of Black Imagination: Black Voices on Black Futures (McSweeney's, 2020) and a conceptual artist whose people-centered projects have circled the globe since 2012 and have been recognized and acknowledged by Art Forum, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the LA Times, NBC, Al Jazeera, Vice, PBS and others. BLACK IMAGINATION — a series of conceptual exhibitions amplifying, centering, and holding sacred a diverse sample of voices including LGBTQIA+ black youth, incarcerated black women, black folks with disabilities, unsheltered black folks, and black children is her bravest work thus far. Her viral web-based project, Reparations, engaged a quarter of a million people worldwide in the practice of "leveraging privilege," and earned Marin, a mother of two, death threats by the dozens.
