“Fighting Cancer with Purpose and Giggles”

Kansas City artist NedRa Bonds will discuss the healing power of art, especially during her lecture, “Fighting Cancer with Purpose and Giggles.” After being diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of breast cancer in 2016, Bonds began working on projects that centered the healing power of art, including “The Hands that Healed Me,” a work featuring quilted handprints of the doctors, nurses, and others who provided care during her cancer journey.This lecture is part of “Chronic Conditions,” a year-long seminar series designed to explore the historical, cultural, and structural processes that have given rise to chronic health conditions among Africans, African immigrants, and African-Americans. The series is sponsored by the A.W. Mellon Foundation. If you’re interested in engaging with NedRa Bonds during her visit, or would like additional information, please contact KUSawyerSem@ku.edu.
