Dr. Fahamu Pecou is an interdisciplinary artist and scholar whose works combine observations on hip-hop, fine art and popular culture.
Pecou’s paintings, performance art, and academic work addresses concerns around contemporary representations of Black men and how these images impact both the reading and performance of Black masculinity.
Fahamu received his BFA at the Atlanta College of Art in 1997 and a Ph.D. from Emory University in 2018. Dr. Pecou exhibits his art worldwide in addition to lectures and speaking engagements at colleges and universities.
“WHOSE AMERICA IS IT, ANYWAY?” seeks artists whose artwork addresses current racial, social and political struggles. This country is experiencing another period of greater racial consciousness and increased social, political and racial turbulence. Recent events have yet again shown the reality of the shifting power struggle that has been repeating in the country since its founding.
How can we, as artists, create and present artwork that sparks critical thinking, empowers alternative narratives, and inspires ourselves and our communities to be more aware and
compassionate to the struggle for equity and human rights in America and the world?
