On behalf of the Stanford Black Alumni Association of Chicago (SBAA-C) Board, we would like you to join us in celebrating Haitian photographer and architect, Zarita Zevallos at the opening reception for her new photography exhibit. 

This photographic exhibit will feature images from her three collections: Pariah, Koktel, and Imperium and will be augmented by programs and discussions on Black masculinity and what a reimagining of black masculinity can provide to our existing frameworks and conversations.

Register with Stanford so we know we'll see you there AND RSVP with EventBrite to secure your spot! EventBrite RBM2019

About the Artist: Zevallos offers beautiful, powerful and haunting images of Black men wrestling with issues of identity, relationships and beauty. Zevallos interpretive photography boldly defies racist stereotypes of Black men as hyper-masculine, violent and uncaring. Dealing with themes of angst, incarceration, love, hetero-patriarchy, brotherhood, beauty and resilience. Zevallos’ images invite viewers to transcend constructs that promote toxic masculinities and to rethink the ways in which we see race, gender, sexuality and our collective humanity.
