Carnival: A Festival for Black Art @ Stanford: Day 2

Date Range
Friday May 27th, 2022
White Plaza

The Stanford Department of Music is hosting an evening concert and a carnival afternoon to support and promote Black art and Black creatives on campus. We will highlight department ensembles, student groups, independent artists, and off-campus community ensembles performing art from cultures across the Black and African Diasporas, as well as arts where the influence of Black creatives is traditionally underrepresented. Our aim is to provide multiple opportunities for our campus community to both actively engage in Black art and be moved towards action. 


  • Tyler "Eaglebable" Brooks (Chicago House DJ)
  • Akwasi Abrefah (steelpan)
  • Stanford Talisman (a capella)
  • O-Tone (a capella)

Admission Information

The two-day Carnival event is free to all, but we are also offering $10-$50 tickets at EventBrite that will support collaborative initiatives from Stanford students and student groups (VSOs) involving Black art and Black creatives.
