Black Love Committee is organized in conjunction with the New Museum’s summer art and social justice residency and exhibition “The Black School x Kameelah Janan Rasheed,” which explores the past and future of critical black pedagogies.

View all public programs related to this exhibition.

The Black School is an experimental art school that uses black history to educate black and POC students and allies on how to become radical agents of social and political change. Co-administrators Joseph Cuillier and Shani Peters are professors and teaching artists, and maintain solo art practices that combine object-based making and social practice.


Exhibition-related programs are made possible, in part, through the support of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Full support for “The Black School x Kameelah Janan Rasheed” can be viewed here.
