The Black Experience in Design

This volume spotlights teaching practices, research, stories, and conversations from a Black/African diasporic lens. Excluded from traditional design history and educational canons that heavily favor European modernist influences, the work and experiences of Black designers have been systematically overlooked in the profession for decades. However, given the national focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion in the aftermath of the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests in the United States, educators, practitioners, and students now have the opportunity to make long-term, systemic changes in design education, research, and practice, reclaiming the contributions of Black designers in the process. ‘The Black Experience in Design’, an anthology centring a range of perspectives, spotlights teaching practices, research, stories, and conversations from a Black/African diasporic lens.
