U-N-I-VERSE Actual Facts / Solar Facts


Thursday, November 10, 12pm – 1pm


Kamau Patton


Kamau Patton (Assistant Professor, VCS) presents excerpts of recordings from the Nation of Gods and Earths, commonly known as the Five Percent Nation or the Five Percenters, an African American social and religious movement founded in Harlem in the late 1960s by Clarence 13x. Video and audio recordings from the Nation of Gods and Earths are joined with a selection of sounds from the Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection. 


Every Thursday we play a different program of sound works from our collection of artists’ recordings spanning the 1960s to the present. Come join us as we make space for collective listening!
