It’s Monumental . . . Ending the Silence is a virtual arts and communications festival to engage our campus and community in a public dialogue. We will use Arts and Communications to explore the dynamics of racism/antiracism, anti-blackness, white supremacy culture and the fluid concepts that develop as we expand our understanding of these phenomena in our society. Works created across our campus and community will be the springboards for public forums and personal conversations as we grapple to understand the complexity of building and sustaining a multiracial democracy.
