         January 19, 2023: Antiracism and the Arts in 18th-Century London: The Life and World of Ignatius Sancho,

                                           (c. 1729–1780): An Interactive Conference.


         Born into slavery, Ignatius Sancho (c. 1729–1780) became a butler, shopkeeper, and musician, as well as a published

         writer and composer. He used the arts to disrupt bias and promote antiracism. Join Rutgers scholars from across

         the arts and humanities to learn about Sancho’s life, work, and impact.


         I will be presenting my ideas for contributions to this important project: blog articles and videos highlighting the    

         African presence in the colonial ballroom.
