See Black Women

May 19, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm PDT

See Black Women
‘See Black Women’ is presented as part of the Art+Action Coalition’s COME TO YOUR CENSUS campaign, which aims to inspire and galvanize Census participation by all communities. This two-part conversation held in collaboration with Art+Action Coalition Partners YBCA and Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD), will take place LIVE on Tuesday, May 19 and Tuesday, May 26 from 4-5:15pm (PST) on YBCA and MoAD’s Facebook pages.

To insist upon being seen and heard is an act of resistance. Telling one’s story, recording a community’s legacy, and creating visual representations of one’s ancestry are methods of resisting erasure. During these two conversations, the participants seek to answer questions including: How do we cite and honor our existence? How do we ensure our labor is acknowledged and our stories are heard for us to receive our fair share—both in civic and artistic arenas?

The first talk includes Erica Deeman / @erica_deeman, Lava Thomas/ @lavathomas , Angela Hennessy /@thehouseofhennessy and Sage Stargate.

The second on 5/26 with Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo /@bluekaza, Tahirah Rasheed, Asya Abdrahman/ @asyaabdrahman, & Sam Vernon / @samevernon

Both panels are curated and moderated by Ashara Ekundayo @blublakwomyn under her #ArtistAsFirstResponder platform
