“What Do You See? Using the Arts to Enrich Understanding the African American Experience” 

June 12, 2019 • 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Grounds For Sculpture • Hamilton, New Jersey

This workshop will explore how the arts can be used to engage our communities and audiences in exploring African American history and experience. Following a presentation about how the arts can challenge the ongoing exclusion of African Americans from our country’s understanding of its past, participants in the workshop will hear from renowned artists in the visual and sculptural arts, music, and theater, who will discuss how their work sheds light on the historical and contemporary African American experience. The workshop will also provide examples of how to use a range of art forms to engage in intense discussions about racial justice issues. Click here for a printable flyer.
