Re-Centering Black Voices in the Arts
February 18 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
This virtual panel will explore intentional exclusion of Black voices in the arts and the emancipatory actions being taken toward reconciliation. Our panelists — drawing on their expertise in music performance, education and history, African American literature, and visual and performing arts — will address specific events and individuals in history that embody anti-racist and/or pro-black ideologies, examine accountability in the music industry after pledges for racial equity and justice post-George Floyd’s killing, and offer their thoughts on methods to “re-center” Black voices in the arts such as the use of culturally relevant pedagogy (CRP) to re-engage curriculum to honor Black voices.
