Sunday, June 30 | 4:30–6 p.m.

Working with Academy Award-winning costume designer Ruth Carter as Marvel Comics' first licensed jewelry designer, Douriean Fletcher created the power-packed accessories for the blockbuster film Black Panther (2018). The Afro-futurist-inspired design propelled audiences into a world where power and gender roles were based on expertise and ability. With the jewelry in a starring role, Fletcher created looks that reflected gender equity in Wakandan society. Join us for a conversation that explores how we communicate gender, power, and expertise through adornment.
