This Friday at 9PM, join me as I welcome photographer Sokari Ekine of blacklooks.org to discuss her photo exhibit Spirit Desire inspired by her journey through Haiti and its spirituality as a journalist, educator, IDP Camp volunteer and mobile clinic attendant. The exhibit opens at Calabar Gallery in Harlem on January 25, 2017.
Sokari is a Nigerian activist, writer and photographer whose work and writing is engaged with pan-Africanist, anti-imperialist, femnist and environmental politics — in both Haiti and Nigeria. She has written for academic journals, anthologies and news publications including Pambazuka News, Feminist Africa and New Internationalist and she is the editor of Blood and Oil: Testimonies of Violence from Women of the Niger Delta, SMS Uprising: Mobile Phone Activism in Africa, and with Firoze Manji, African Awakening: The Emerging Revolutions.
