Disrupting Racism Through The Lens of the Arts (Part I): From The Middle Passage to Antebellum Period
February 6 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm PST
Presenter: Dr. Ronald McCurdy
Disrupting Racism Through The Lens of the Arts is a historical journey that will explore how central the arts were used as a means of thwarting racism. From the early creation of the Negro Spirituals in the 17th century to the pulsating rhythms of today’s rap music, African Americans have used their creative voices to express their disdain for racist and oppressive treatment by a country that claimed that, “All men (and women) are created equal.”
This presentation will discuss how art has been used to illuminate and thwart systemic racism that has existed in America since its inception.
