Our Mission

Contemporary Black Canvas celebrates the depth and breadth of the Black artistic and intellectual traditions from across the African Diaspora and Africa. Through conversations with leading writers, musicians, filmmakers, visual artists, dancers, radical gardeners, and institution builders, we examine the Black imagination as a vital, vibrant, and dynamic force for individual and collective transformation. This podcast is an accessible and mobile university without walls that presents the ideas of leading Black creators, thinkers, and builders to Black audiences world-wide.
