Ignorant Bliss Bonus: TCAF 2018 Radical Application of Black Aesthetics


Here is the Radical Application of Black Aesthetics panel with David Brothers and Ronald Wimberly. It was recorded by Jamie Coville at Word Balloon Academy during TCAF 2018. I would like to thank Jamie for letting me put this on my show and feed. Here is a link to all the other panels recorded from TCAF 2018 and other conventions.


Here is the description of the panel from Jamie’s site:

David Brothers asks Ronald Wimberly questions about his thoughts on how the black body is depicted in pop culture. Ronald reads from his LAAP magazine in regards to that issue and other images he created in it. Why the depictions of the black body were bad and what their purpose was. They spoke briefly about the Cotton Club, the production of Cotton and it impacts on Europe. There was just discussion on Jay-Z’s The Story of OJ and the Sambo character. Other topics touched on was Anime and appropriation, seeing stereotypes as kids and changing it for modern audience (eg the Mammy character from Tom & Jerry cartoons), black women vs black men depictions, blaxploitation done by white creators, the 1975 Coonskin animated movie, Donald Glover’s / Childish Gambino’s This is America video, the White Gaze & David Chappel, and Monsters & black bodies.

Note: There are some swearing and racial slurs were spoken on this panel. “
