This reading list, complied by FRD Research and Editorial Intern Gillani Peets, discusses fashion’s place within discourses about the African Diaspora.
“African Diasporic Fashion is a defiant visual tradition rooted in redesigning testimonials of poetic writers, eternal improvisations of jazz maestros, radical artistry of painters, and political commentary of photographers. Transversed beyond time or land, this list reimagines the past, present, and future of African Diasporic fashion.”
