Fashion Night: Modern Black Dandies

June 1, 2017

6:30–9:30 p.m. 

Throughout the Museum

The Brooklyn Museum and Aperture Foundation invite you to celebrate black men’s style as a form of personal politics with a night of fashion, film, and music, organized in honor of author Shantrelle P. Lewis’s new book, Dandy Lion: The Black Dandy and Street Style. With programs activating both our performance spaces and the Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern exhibition galleries, this evening celebrates the art and style of black dandies, men of African descent who use fashion to define and inhabit a proud, radically independent public persona. Discussion moderated by Rashid Shabazz, VP of Communications, Campaign for Black Male Achievement.


  • Shantrelle P. Lewis, author and curator
  • Darnell Moore, Editor-at-Large, Interactive One
  • Ignacio Quiles, Haberdasher, QP & Monty
  • Abiola Oke, CEO, Okayafrica.

Supported by the Campaign for Black Male Achievement.

Tickets are $16 ($14 for Members). Tickets with a copy of Lewis’s book are $50 ($45 for Members). To receive the Member discount code, email us at with your full name and Membership ID.
