An Inter-Generational Dialogue between the Civil Rights & Hip-Hop Generations
The Art Of Resistance joins premier contemporary artists in dialogue with the artist/activists of the Black Arts and Civil Rights Movements, the pioneers of hip-hop culture, and YOU, the next generation. Together, we will examine past alliances between art and social movements, with an eye on defining what political art and artful politics look like in today’s changing and polarized America.
This forum focuses on empowering youth to consider best practices for moving a political agenda around issues that affect their daily lives and building new institutions that speak to the contemporary challenges facing young Americans in the post election, post recession moment.
A panel of scholars, activists, and artists lead participants in an interactive 90-minute townhall style discussion that explores the major civil rights issues of our time and encourages students “to be the change they wish to see in the world.”
