Happening Yesterday, Happened Tomorrow: teaching about the on-going killings of black women and men

Presenters: Dyan Watson and Renée Watson

In response to newspaper articles and images, participants will learn about and discuss the Black Lives Matter movement and look at the historical context of police brutality and racial profiling. We will explore how artists have responded to injustice and will discuss how poetry, performance, and movement can be a form of peaceful protest. Hands-on art-making activities and small group work will give participants an opportunity to create and share a collaborative piece.
