Black Arts, Black Magic

Black Arts, Black Magic was a community panel presented at the inaugural Black Futures Now Toronto (BFNTO) Conference on July 16th, 2016 at the Technology Enhanced Learning Building (TEL) at York University.

Sponsored by the Feminist Art Conference (FAC) and organized by FAC Outreach Committee Members Lynx Sainte-Marie and Aldeli Alban Reyna, four Black trans/non-binary/gender non-conforming artists were invited to speak about their artistic practice, their ancestral histories and lineages, recite or perform work and discuss how “Black Magic” manifests in their art and everyday lives.
