Food and drink not only provide the nourishment that sustains life, they also serve as an anchor for identity by tethering human kind to a particular place in nature, culture, time and place. Food has long been the immigrant’s language for articulating a conflicted sense of identity, a diasporic community’s language for a conflicted sense of cultural heritage, and for a nation’s augmented conflict over notions of territories and boundaries. As recipes and rituals around dining and drinking practices are handed down from one generation to the next, they help to create a sense of connection to those who have come before us and those who will come after us.

Art as Liberation in the Black Fantastic

updated: 
Friday, August 9, 2019 - 10:49am
Third Stone Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 30, 2019

Across the African diaspora, art was a form of expression and liberation at times of widespread cultural oppression, enabling artists of color to resist the tradition of silencing while preserving their histories, traditions, and more in ways that could be passed down intergenerationally. While much art worked to fulfill a political purpose by pushing for equality and liberty in oppressive cultures, other works aimed at achieving liberation by way of celebrating Black cultural forms, from the cutting-edge music of Erykah Badu to that of Janelle Monae.
