Event description

Description

The BU Arts Initiative, the Howard Thurman Center for the Common Ground, and the Boston Black Artists Alliance welcome you to join us on Wednesday, April 19th at 7:00 p.m. in Photonics 206 for a panel discussion titled: Black Artists Speak - Opportunity, Activism, and Community.

This panel will feature visual artists Heather Hart and Jina Valentine, playwright Kirsten Greenidge, and musician Danny Mekonnen of Debo Band, moderated by Victoria George from ArtsBoston.



The Black Lunch Table (BLT) is an ongoing collaboration between artist and UNC Assistant Professor of Art Jina Valentine and New York-based, media and social-practice artist, Heather Hart. First staged in 2005 at the preeminent artist residency Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, this project augments the dominant history of contemporary art with the testimonies of living, working, African American artists. The primary aim is the production of discursive sites, wherein cultural producers of color engage in critical dialogue with one another on topics directly affecting our community. The Black Lunch Table cultivates audience contingency—participants become constituents as they find their agency within the project.
