Join us for a special DEMAN Weekend-ish, featuring "black-ish" and "grown-ish"! In fact, we are thrilled to host this event the night of the Season 7 premiere of "black-ish". Meet the Duke alumni writers, Ritza Bloom '13, Robb Chavis 98, and Vanessa McGee (Dukie). They will take us behind the scenes of the creative process, explore cultural themes and share their career paths, as well as answer your questions. Introduction by John Brown, Vice Provost for the Arts. Moderated by Mark Anthony Neal, the James B. Duke Distinguished Professor of African and African American Studies. 

ABC's Emmy® and Golden Globe®-nominated comedy series "black-ish" takes a fun yet bold look at one man's determination to establish a sense of cultural identity for his family (Season 7 premieres the same evening as our program, Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at 9:30pm EDT). A spinoff from “black-ish” creator, Kenya Barris, “grown-ish” follows the Johnsons' eldest daughter, Zoey, as she heads off to college and quickly discovers that not everything goes her way once she leaves the nest. It's a contemporary take on the issues facing students and administrators in the world of higher education (Season 4 premieres 2021).
