Akande X

December 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Programmed by Chika Okoye and David Brazil

Writer Akande X shares “That Feeling When,” a multimedia presentation on the intersection of blackness, comedy, the Internet, and politics. In an age when white nationalism has a deep foothold in Internet culture, “TFW” provides a theoretical approach to the ethics of the Internet and the substance of memes as comedy and as political message, revealing how memes are one of the most subversive, volatile, and promising black art forms today.

Akande X is an editor in chief for Maji News, an Afrofuturist community newspaper, and a journalism major at the University of Southern California.
