Lit Fridays is a literary-focused, virtual salon presented by The August Wilson African American Cultural Center, featuring conversations and guest performances on the last Friday of each month.

Nona Faustine is a native New Yorker and award winning photographer. In 2019 she was distinguished with the New York Foundation Arts award in Photography, BRIC Colene Brown Art Prize, Anonymous Was A Woman Award, and was a Finalist in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery Outwin Boochever Competition. Her work focuses on history, identity and representation, evoking a critical and emotional understanding of the past and proposes a deeper examination of contemporary racial and gender stereotypes. Faustine’s My Country series will be on view from March 5–August 30, 2021 in The Warhol’s Fantasy America exhibition. Fantasy America invites artists Nona Faustine, Kambui Olujimi, Pacifico Silano, Naama Tsabar, and Chloe Wise to revisit Andy Warhol’s publication America (1985) and contribute through their own artistic practices. Each of these five artists produces work that offers a complex picture of contemporary American life.
