Join Dr. Bridget Cooks and Dr. Kellie Jones, two professors combining African American and Black Diaspora studies with Art History, as they spend an evening unraveling the impact and legacy left behind by artist and arts advocate Ruth Waddy. Waddy was a visionary and pioneer for the recognition of Black artists in and across the United States. In 1987, after receiving an honorary doctorate from Otis Arts Institute of Parsons School of Design, Waddy was deemed a “prophet exclaiming the news of Black artists and calling upon the world to embrace them.”
