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

Webster University Ghana would like to invite you to engage with its distinguished panellists of pop culture scholars to 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; about the value of black female bodies; and what this all means for 21st century masculinity in Africa and its diaspora.
