?Art has the power to provoke, inspire, inform, and force new ways of thinking - particularly in times of crisis. Over the last few years, artists have been engaged in resistance movements, encouraging political participation through their art, and calling attention to issues and tragic events that confront us in novel and affecting ways.

Join us for a discussion on how artists, particularly artists of color, are responding to the current fight for racial justice in the midst of a global pandemic. We will explore how they are expressing what is happening in creative ways that inspire deeper thinking, how they are engaging with organizations to help them further social justice, and new ways to approach the power of art and artists to help strengthen equity and inclusion.Panelists include:

  • Jessica Care Moore, poet, playwright, performance artist, producer, and author
  • Bakari Kitwana, Executive Director, Rap Sessions and Nasir Jones HipHop Fellow at W.E.B. Dubois Research Insitute/Harvard Hutchins Center for African and African American Research
  • Prentiss Haney, Political Director, Midwest Culture Lab
  • Marshall Shorts, Jr. Visual Artist, designer, entrepreneur, and creative director of Midwest Culture Lab
  • Ray Block (Moderator), Associate Professor of Political Science and African American Studies, Pennsylvania State University
