What Signs Say Part Two
The final discussion in this two-part series presented by the Center for Brooklyn History looks at how our streetscapes carry us forward and backwards, through activism and nostalgia.
- Explore the aesthetics of gentrification in Brooklyn
- Examine how streetscapes, signage and public art speak to messages of class and race
- Moderated by Untapped New York’s Founder Michelle Young
About this Webinar:
Michelle Young leads this discussion with linguist Shonna Trinch and cultural anthropologist Edward Snajdr, who co-authored the book What the Signs Say: Language, Gentrification, and Place-Making in Brooklyn; artist Hank Willis Thomas whose work touches upon themes of identity, history, and popular culture; Jeremiah Moss, author of Vanishing New York: How a Great City Lost Its Soul; and artist Neil Goldberg whose videos, photography, mixed media, and performance work reflect embodiment mortality, and the everyday. Together they will look at streetscapes, signage and public art, as they speak to messages of class and race, the power of words shown publicly, and marketing to upward mobility.
