Looking forward to this event in Grand Rapids, MI in a week! Join us….
Panel Talk: Abandoned Margins: Policing the Black Female Body
Featuring Partners for a Racism-Free Community
March 17, 2017
Free for UICA Members; Free with Admission
Join us for a discussion led by a panel of community organizers, scholars, and artists as we investigate depictions of the black female body in art and in United States’ popular culture. The panel will recognize ways that traditional representations of black women aid in systemic racism and marginalization, and will consider methods for using visual language to challenge stereotypes instead of perpetuate them.
