Public Lecture: Celebrity, Complicity and Community: Making Sense of ‘Surviving R Kelly


  • Kobina Ankomah-Graham, Writer, DJ and Lecturer, GCP/Media Communications, Webster Ghana
  • Erinn Ransom Ofori, Lecturer, Africana Studies, Webster Ghana

In a digital era in which the past no longer remains buried, some of the entertainment industry's most powerful men have been surprised to find themselves being held to account. Since its airing in January of this year, Surviving R. Kelly has seen the #MeToo movement catch up with a global superstar, bringing into the light long-rumored details of hidden abuse and trauma.

This public lecture will discuss and debate lingering questions about collective complicity in failing to hold celebrities to account; about whether it is possible (or right) to separate artists from their art; the value of black female bodies; the responsibility of communities to address sexual violence; and what relevance does this have for 21st century masculinity and gender relations in Africa and its diaspora.
