My guests on the podcast this week are cultural producer, curator and current Ph.D Candidate at the University of Texas at Austin Ja’nell Ajani and legendary documentary, fashion, and street photographer Jamel Shabazz.
In our wide ranging conversation we chat about 'Peace to the Queen,' the four-decades career retrospective of Mr. Shabazz' work at the Carver Museum in Austin, Texas. Curated by Ms. Anjani, 'Peace to the Queen' has materialized and aligned at a critical moment in American history and Jamel Shabazz’s resurgent career. We chat about how the exhibit came together, how Ms. Ajani and Mr. Shabazz became friends and colleagues, their respective life journeys, and most importantly their shared commitment on using art to empower marginalized communities and to inspire humanity to be better and do better.
