What does it mean to be seen as a guest in the home that your ancestors built? This is one of many questions that Cortland Gilliam and Jerry J. Wilson have been pondering while exploring representations of Blackness at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Co-sponsored by Yet & Still, the Center for the Study of the American South, Arts Everywhere UNC, Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership, and Chapel Hill Community Arts & Culture, #BlackOutLoudUNC aims to highlight the beauty and heterogeneity of Blackness in the context of a historically white, public university in the American South. The initial pop-up art exhibition took place on Wednesday, September 25th, 2019. Due to Covid-19, the April 2020 showing has been postponed until further notice. We invite you to check out the @Yet.and.Still Instagram page.
