  • #BlackLivesMatter Arts in the Performing Arts

    February 10, 2023, 12:30 PM-2:00 PM

    The National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) presents:

    Initially a hashtag but now a global movement, #BlackLivesMatter emerged as a response to the 2013 acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murder. With the mission to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes, the global network is expansive and affirms the lives of Black queer and trans folx, as well as Black peoples’ humanity. But, what is the role of the arts in advancing #BlackLivesMatter? That is the central question this webinar will explore by engaging artists from dance, music, theatre, and visual art.

    Is RSVP required? Yes
