Building Justice from the Source | Traditional Artists Respond to this Moment: Race and (In)Justice, A Multilingual National Panel
This national panel moderated by Heather L. Hodges (Executive Director, Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor) brings together a group of emerging, African American traditional artists and scholars from across the nation: Jake Blunt, Sara Makeba Daise, Marquise Knox and Latanya d. Tigner. They are all deeply rooted in traditional culture and drawing on that powerful wellspring to offer important, contemporary social critiques of race, racial injustice and notions of self-identity. Their work encourages us to shape new narratives around contemporary, cultural identities rooted in traditional ways of knowing, living and making art -- yet keenly responsive to our current moment.
