Black Life, Unitentiary and Android Cops
VENUE | University of Texas
LECTURE | Dr Moyo Okediji
This lecture, by Dr Moyo Okediji, highlights the gender, racial, economic and sexual politics of recent street-level smartphone activism in the United States, under the notion of “Unitentiary and Android Cops.” Civil activists and organizations such as “Black Lives Matter” have greatly benefited from the popular use of the smartphone. But what remains hidden in global cultural blind spots, awaiting discovery beyond the technology of the smartphone? Following an autobiographical storyline linking the past to the present, the lecture weaves a narrative of images, music, and literatures spanning several centuries across trans-Atlantic experiences of Triangular trade culture.
