Marilyn Nance: Last Day in Lagos

Publication Cover

A focused study on a singular African American photographer, Marilyn Nance, through an archival encounter with her documentation of the landmark FESTAC’77 festival.

While serving as the photographer for the US contingent of the North American delegation, Brooklyn-based photographer Marilyn Nance made more than 1,500 images throughout the course of the festival—one of the most comprehensive photographic accounts of FESTAC’77. Drawing from Nance’s extensive archive, most of which has never before been published, Last Day in Lagos chronicles the exuberant intensity and sociopolitical significance of this extraordinary event.
