Black Revelry by Dr. Derrais Carter is an immersive project based on the painting "Sugar Shack" by Ernie Barnes. Carter will give a public presentation on campus about Black social life in NC communities.


This event is sponsored by Dr. Aleia Brown, Whichard Distinguished Professor in the Humanities, currently held in the Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences Department of History.


The event is free and open to the public.


About the painting: It wasn't until May 2022 that it broke into the mainstream art world by selling for $15 million at an auction in New York. Prior to that, Barnes' painting was ubiquitous with Black interior life.
