Press Quotes

“a bold and bounding work… #negrophobia is a play that needs to be seen.”
NEW YORK THEATER REVIEW


“...prolific Nigerian-American poet, curator, choreographer and performance artist’s new show explores the erotic fear associated with the black male body.”  —LIZZIE SIMON, WALL STREET JOURNAL


“A foray into the dramatic and vulnerable elements of identity”  
—EFFIE BOWEN, INTERVIEW

“Jaamil Olawale Kosoko’s #negrophobia has many forms. It is an art installation, a practiced, choreographed performance, and a poetry reading. It is a personal story and a history lesson, told through the lens of internet culture. It might be consciousness-raising and Afrofuturist, but it might also be the negation of both.”
—KATHERINE BERGSTROM, POINT OF CONTACT
