Zakiyyah is a classically trained singer, actor, and political activist versed in opera, hip-hop, jazz, and R&B. After sweeping headlines with Shades of Black: The Hip-Hopera last year, she continues to use her art as a vehicle to address issues of racial justice, gender equality, and economic equality in Boston and beyond.

Zakiyyah brings her arts activism to the Museum for an evening of conversation around the decolonization of cultural institutions and the important role museums play in combating racism and deconstructing white supremacy in America. Featuring incredible live performances from Shades of Black: The Hip-Hopera, her upcoming release African Import, and more!

In conversation with Jeneé Osterheldt, culture columnist and creator of A Beautiful Resistance, a special project for The Boston Globe that centers Black voices and celebrates Black Joy.
