Walmart has hand-selected nine celebrated chefs nationally to kick off the 2nd year of its Rediscovering America program. The purpose of the program is to highlight the importance of making fresh, quality produce available to everyone while spotlighting the importance of supporting farmers and responsibly sourcing produce, which Walmart does in 42 states with thousands of farms and farmers.

Locally, Chef Sean Mendes has added a one-of-a-kind dish to his menu inspired by the fresh, quality produce found at the local Walmart stores, and this year, Walmart is bringing the program to Charleston.

Yep. You read that right. From now to October 9, Charleston residents can get a special taste of Walmart’s produce in Chef Mendes’s dish—Farmer’s Cassarole—at Gillie’s Seafood.

The retailer is also awarding ten, $10,000 scholarships to female chefs and chefs of color across the country through the James Beard Foundation.

In conjunction with his exhibition at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, “Colin Quashie: Linked,” the artist will join Kali Holloway of the Make It Right Project to discuss his work and how it relates to current efforts to remove Confederate monuments around the country.

In his latest series, called Linked, Quashie juxtaposes images of well-known Black figures with other representations of artifacts to comment on stereotypes as they exist today. In Gabriel, Quashie tweaks an image of Louie Armstrong, updating his signature trumpet with a set of slave shackles. Similarly, in Rose Colored, he creates an image of Harriet Tubman donning a pair of rose-colored glasses, referencing the abolitionist’s view of slaveholders, for whom she still held a level of empathy. With these works, Quashie teases out underlying stereotypes, exposing them for all to see more plainly.

About the Make It Right Project
Directed by Kali Holloway, the Make It Right (MIR) Project is a multimedia campaign dedicated to righting social justice wrongs. The goal of MIR isn’t merely to “raise awareness” or “spark a national dialogue,” but to use multiple media formats to move the needle and create visible, measurable change. The inaugural project is focused on the removal of Confederate monuments and memorials, which are tangible eulogies to heroes of a treasonous anti-American campaign and a reflection of U.S. investment in white power and supremacy.

About Kali Holloway
Kali Holloway co-curated the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s MetLiveArts 2017 summer performance and film series, “Theater of the Resist.” She previously worked on the HBO documentary Southern Rites, PBS documentary The New Public and Emmy-nominated film Brooklyn Castle, and was Outreach Consultant on the award-winning documentary The New Black. Her writing has appeared in AlterNet, Salon, the Guardian, TIME, the Huffington Post, the National Memo, and numerous other outlets.

Jackson; Rev. Eric S.C. Manning, pastor, Mother Emanuel AME Church; Polly Sheppard, one of the adult survivors; Rev. Dr. Brenda Nelson, ministerial staff 2015-2019, who lost a best friend, Rev.

ZORA NEALE HURSTON: JUMP AT THE SUN
Producer/Writer: Kristy Andersen, Director: Sam Pollard, California Newsreel –- (2008, 124 min minutes)

Zora Neale Hurston, path-breaking novelist, pioneering anthropologist and one of the first black women to enter the American literary canon (Their Eyes Were Watching God), established the African American vernacular as one of the most vital, inventive voices in American literature. This definitive film biography, eighteen years in the making, portrays Zora in all her complexity: gifted, flamboyant, and controversial but always fiercely original.

Discussion Facilitators: Tiffany Packer, Florida A&M University & Sharony Green, University of Alabama

6:30pm – 8:00pm
BEYOND THE FIELDS: SLAVERY AT MIDDLETON PLACE
A Featured Presentation

Middleton Place, a National Historic Landmark, located on the Ashley River outside of Charleston, South Carolina, has been engaged for decades in telling the story not just of its white owners, but also of its African American population. For many years, images of slavery by white artists have shown legions of African Americans toiling in fields ̶ fields of tobacco, sugar, cotton and rice. Looking beyond the fields, the Middleton Place Foundation’s programming documents and commemorates, as far as possible, the lives, families and contributions of some seven generations of people owned by the Middleton family. The enslaved left few artifacts, personal papers or documents. In the Charleston area, even recorded oral histories are rare. Middleton family letters, plantation records, probate records and other public documents provide only brief glimpses into the lives of the enslaved at Middleton Place. The Foundation was confronted with the very real challenge in making visible those who had been invisible and extrapolating tangible evidence from the intangibles of their lives. This American story is told through discussions with historians, authors, researchers, preservationists, historic site interpreters and descendants of the Middletons.

Discussion Facilitators: Lyndsey Beutin, Oberlin College & The Middleton Place Foundation

8:15pm – 10:15pm
HOMECOMING: THE STRUGGLE OF BLACKS TO OWN
California Newsreel – 1999 – 57 minutes

Homecoming is the first film to explore the rural roots of African American life. It chronicles the generations-old struggle of African Americans for land of their own which pitted them against both the Southern white power structure and the federal agencies responsible for helping them. Director Charlene Gilbert weaves this history together with a fond portrait of her own Georgia farming family into what she calls, “A story of land and love.” Like so much of African American history, the Black farmers’ story is one of perseverance in the face of prejudice and perjured promises.

Discussion Facilitator: Tiffany B Lee, Harris Stowe State University

DIRT AND DEEDS IN MISSISSIPPI
Director/Writer David Shulman
2016, 1h 21min

This film uncovers the largely unknown and pivotal role played by Black landowning families in the deep South who controlled over a million acres in the 1960s. They were prepared to put their land and their lives on the line in the fight for racial equality and the right to vote in America’s most segregated and violently racist state.

In the face of escalating terror, Black landowners and independent farmers provided safe havens, collateral for jail bonds, armed protection and locations for Freedom Schools. They were often the first to attempt to register to vote and run for public office. Emmy Award Winner.

Discussion Facilitator: Ida B. Jones, Morgan State University

12:15pm – 1:45pm
BOSS: THE BLACK EXPERIENCE IN BUSINESS
A Featured Presentation
Stanley Nelson – Director Firelight Media – 1 hr 53 min

The history of business and entrepreneurship lies at the heart of the American story, but often absent from that narrative are the names and experiences of African Americans who, from the country’s earliest days, have embodied the qualities of innovation, risk-taking and determination to forge a path toward a better life. Tracing more than 150 years of African American men and women, from those bound by bondage to moguls at the top of multi-million-dollar empires seek to claim their place in the story of American entrepreneurship. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson, the new documentary brings the largely unknown stories of enterprising African Americans to the forefront.

Discussion Facilitator: Shennette Garrett-Scott, University of Mississippi

STRANGE FRUIT: THE FAMOUS SONG AND ITS STORY
Producer/Director/Writer: Joel Katz, Filmmaker
(2002, 58 minutes)

The first documentary exploring the history and legacy of the Billie Holiday classic. The song’s evolution tells a dramatic story of America’s radical past using one of the most influential protest songs ever written as its epicenter. The saga brings viewers face- to- face with the terror of lynching even as it spotlights the courage and heroism of those who fought for racial justice when to do so was to risk ostracism and livelihood if white – and death if Black. It examines the history of lynching, and the interplay of race, labor and the left, and popular culture as forces that would give rise to the Civil Rights Movement.

Discussion Facilitator: Dennis Rogers, Washington, DC

Producer/Director, Larry Adelman, Executive Producer (2008, 56 minutes)

“Unnatural Causes” sounds the alarm about the extent of our glaring socio-economic and racial inequities in health and searches for their root causes. But those causes are not what we might expect. While we pour more and more money into drugs, dietary supplements and new medical technologies, “Unnatural Causes” crisscrosses the country investigating the findings that are shaking up conventional understanding of what really makes us healthy or sick.

With incredible archival performances and a fascinating behind-the-scenes look as the theater prepares to open Ta-Nehisi Coates’ multimedia performance “Between the World,” it becomes evident that the venue’s significance is the result of not only the talents to have graced its stage, but the tremendous efforts behind the curtain. The Apollo’s enduring influence on popular culture and commitment to both established and emerging artists in the community is lovingly chronicled in this captivating tribute from Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams.

Join the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art for an artist talk with Colin Quashie in the form of a conversation with Frank C. Martin, the “Linked” exhibition essayist, and director of the I.P. Stanback Museum & Planetarium at South Carolina State University in Orangeburg, SC. Martin will interview the artist then open the floor to questions. Free admission!

Colin Quashie creates images that comment on contemporary racial stereotypes. Combining historical relics and artifacts with icons from past and present popular culture, Quashie sharply critiques the way people of color are portrayed in modern visual culture. Using his signature caustic wit, he blends images to allow viewers to more fully explore how images of African Americans and Black culture are constructed today.

In his latest series, called “Linked,” Quashie juxtaposes images of well-known Black figures with other representations of artifacts to comment on stereotypes as they exist today. With these works, Quashie teases out underlying stereotypes, exposing them for all to see more plainly.

Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art
161 Calhoun Street, Charleston, SC 29401

Traditionally, art and activism have occupied separate domains. Often, art’s ambiguity and open endedness lay in contrast to activism’s clear messaging. In recent years, many artists have blurred the line between this supposed distinction, calling attention to issues in their work while making museums sites of resistance. How does art function as activism?

For this Halsey Talks, we will be joined by Kali Holloway, journalist and director of the Make It Right Project, a multimedia campaign dedicated to righting social justice wrongs. Holloway is currently organizing events around the country featuring readings, dance performances, and visual art engagements dedicated to illuminating Confederate monuments’ ties to white supremacy.

____________________
Halsey Talks are an ongoing series of roundtable discussions on intriguing concepts in art. While they may take advantage of exhibitions on view at the Halsey Institute, they are open-ended in nature. As a platform for a deeper understanding and discussion of fascinating ideas in art, Halsey Talks are open to all.
