Art and Ideas: Dr. Nikki Lane @ MOCA Jacksonville
Jun 29 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

 

“Black Women Queering the Mic: Missy Elliott Disturbing the Boundaries of Racialized Sexuality and Gender” elaborates on how Grammy award-winning rapper Missy Elliott (“Get Ur Freak On”) has disturbed the boundaries around what is understood to be “appropriate” for black women within and outside of hip-hop culture. Dr. Nikki Lane discusses how Missy “queers” hip-hop, or questions heteronormativity, and exposes its fault lines. This queering, Lane argues, allows Elliott to boldly place her body, voice, and art at the center of a more expanded vision of hip-hop where anybody can grab the mic. Lane concludes with how Elliott dares us to listen to the beautiful art black women can make when they “synthesize” their experiences of race, gender, and sexuality.

Free and open to the public

HOW IT WORKS:
Let’s face it, by now you know it takes meeting a number of people before you find someone you click with. But the problem is, how do you meet them in the first place? Sure there are ways–bars, blind dates, dating services, online, etc. But they all have their disadvantages and they take time…lots of it. What fun is it to wait around for someone to talk to you in a bar or when you’re out and about? What fun is it to risk rejection over and over again striking up conversations with people you don’t even know are single? What if the conversation goes well, what about the awkwardness afterwards with asking for phone numbers? With Jacksonville Pre-Dating, you meet up to 12 (and sometimes more) single professionals in less than 2 hours. Think of it as a series of “facilitated introductions” just like when you go to a party with a good host. Afterwards, if there’s interest (you discreetly circle on your interest sheet who you would like to hear from again), you’ll get an email with links to contact your “mutual matches”. There’s no pressure, no rejection, no embarrassment and no games, just fun! Try it and you’ll see for yourself.
