The panel discussion will take place at The Great Hall at The Cooper Union (7 East 7th Street, New York), and will have a special focus on the much-anticipated recent republication of Roy DeCarava’s The Sweet Flypaper of Life by First Print Press. This volume, which DeCarava created with the poet Langston Hughes in 1955, has been out of print for over thirty years and is currently being distributed worldwide by David Zwirner Books and D.A.P.

Leading up to the centennial anniversary in 2019 of the artist’s birth, the panel will be moderated by Thelma Golden and will include writer and critic A.D. Coleman; independent filmmaker Radiclani Clytus; Leslie Hewitt, Assistant Professor at The Cooper Union School of Art; John Stauffer, Kates professor of English an African & African American studies at Harvard University; and photographer Hope Wurmfeld.

The event is free and open to the public. Kindly visit the event page to learn more and reserve your tickets in advance.
