Photos from The Stand featured in Museum of Modern Art course

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is hosting an online course that features two pictures from The Stand, Syracuse’s south side newspaper.

Reimagining Blackness and Architecture” looks at the connection between Black lived experience and architecture, and features insights from Black artists, architects and scholars.

The course, launched March 4, also includes Syracuse University School of Architecture assistant professor Sekou Cooke’s project, “We Outchea: Hip Hop Fabrications and Public Space.” Both Cooke’s project and MoMA’s course are available for free through Coursera.

The Stand is a collaboration between the South Side Community Coalition, Syracuse University and a number of dedicated community residents.
