Presented by the Tanenbaum Lecture Series and the International Issues Discussion Series

Jamel Shabazz is a documentary photographer whose socially-conscious practice was shaped by images of the American Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War. For over forty years, both in the United States and abroad, Shabazz has recorded a wide range of topics, from the birth of Hip-Hop to the effects of the crack epidemic, war veterans, and everyday life. Please arrive early, seating is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Howard and Carole Tanenbaum Lecture Series is co-presented biannually by the Ryerson Image Centre and the School of Image Arts, Ryerson University.

Founded in 2005, the IID is a non-partisan, student-led forum designed to engage all members of the Ryerson University community on major events and issues in contemporary global affairs through reasoned, objective, and scholarly discourse. Please visit iid.kislenko.com.
