Art Opening & Dialogue: On Delegitimization and Solidarity: Sisiku AyukTabe, Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Myth of Violent Africa

The Ambazonia Prisoners of Conscience Support Network (APOCS) is pleased to join with internationally-acclaimed Afro-expressionist artist Adjani Okpu-Egbe to invite you to an unveiling of his first US solo show, accompanied by an international and cross-generational conversation on the roots of his work: the ongoing war and revolution in his West African homeland of Ambazonia (also known as English-speaking Cameroon).

The event is hosted by the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP) and cosponsored by APOCS and the International Peace Research Association (IPRA).

WHEN: September 17th, 2021, 6-8pm
WHERE: online and in person at 1040 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11211
NOTE: In person attendees, please bring proof of COVID19 vaccination. Medical and religious exemptions will be attended to.

The installation of mixed media compositions, curated by Amy Rosenblum-Martín, explores international links within anti-colonialist and anti-racist activism. The opening will be held on the anniversary of the publication of Martin Luther King, Jr’s first book, Stride Toward Freedom, and will feature the artist’s works reflecting the linkages between the African-American freedom movement and the struggle in Ambazonia today. Okpu-Egbe will be joined by PanAfrican, antiwar and political prisoner solidarity organizers, including leaders from APOCS, for a facilitated dialogue on the themes of neocolonialism and decoloniality, revolutionary nonviolence in the face of militarized repression, and the call of solidarity and internationalized anti-racism today.
