The Color Curtain Project Inaugural Dinner

In April 1955, twenty-nine Asian and African countries gathered in Bandung, Indonesia to take stock of the geopolitical dynamics at the time, and to forge a new coalition denouncing racism, colonialism, and nuclear war.

To honor and reflect on the intricate connections between past and present, NY- and DC-based scholars and artists began The Color Curtain Project, a dinner party and art book that convene individuals of African- and Asian-American identities for constructive dialogue. Named after Richard Wright’s reporting on the Bandung Conference, The Color Curtain Project encourages participants to break bread and candidly discuss political and social justice challenges that entwine the contemporary Afro-Asian-American experience.
