Teaching Artist News: Youth-led Digital Rally and Art Exhibit !
So excited to announce a very special event. This Thursday, August 13 at 12-2pm EST, please attend a powerful youth-led digital rally and art exhibition titled "Reimagining Black Liberation through Afrofuturism" addressing structural racism as it relates to the Black community across education, justice, and health --- including the impact of COVID-19.
It has been my honor to serve as teaching artist and work with the inspiring young activists and fellows of The Gem Project, Inc. (@thegemproject) this Summer in preparation for this important action. We've been using Afrofuturism as reference for works created by the fellows that speak to our current realities as well as a more equitable vision for our world.
Thank you Amanda Ebokosia for inviting me to participate in this vital work and for the opportunity to get involved.
Register early and join at http://thegemproject.org/rally2020 for an opportunity to learn from our youth.
