Ancestor’s Future Performance Art

June 29, 11am1pm.
Free with Admission

How do Black descendants of those enslaved in America envision the future of sites of enslavement? Join Afrofuturist, Artist, and Historical Interpreter Cheyney McKnight in her exhibit, The Ancestor’s Future: An Afrofuturist’s Journey Through Time at Dyckman Farmhouse Museum.  The exhibit is a personally curated journey from the past of Black America to the future of the African diaspora that uses clothing and set design to center the descendants in the conversation.  The public is invited to join McKnight along with other descendants over a cup of tea in a conversation about the African experience in America’s past, and how it is impacting the present, and hear speculations about the far future of the Diaspora through the lens of descendants.
