BASQUIAT: Still Fly @ 55 is a project dedicated to exploring the life and legacy of Jean-Michel Basquiat, not only as a global trendsetter, but also as a 20th century icon. This program, founded by NYU graduate students, Ja'nell Ajani and Ayanna Legros, encourages audiences to explore and historicize the cultural phenomena and life events that laid the foundation for Basquiat's creative genius and his undeniable impact on African Diasporic communities across the globe.

The Black Lunch Table (BLT)  intends to fill holes in the documentation of contemporary art history. In its 10 year existence, the BLT has taken a variety of forms including this most recent iteration, the Wikipedia edit-a-thon. BLT’s aim is the production of discursive sites (at literal and metaphorical lunch tables), wherein cultural producers of color engage in critical dialogue on topics directly affecting our communities. They endeavor to create spaces, online and off, mirroring the activity and creativity present in sites where Blackness and Art are performed.
