Join the Center for Civil and Human Rights for an evening with artist Fahamu Pecou and his Talking Drum exhibit. There will be hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and exhibit access! VIP ticket holders will get the opportunity for a meet and greet with the artist.
Talking Drum considers the role of Black popular culture- specifically music, in social justice movements. As outlined in Pat Thomas’ Listen Whitey, recording artists and their music contributed greatly to the mobilization and dissemination of Black social thought both prior to and during the Civil Rights and Black Power movements of the 1960s and 1970s.
We invite you to join those passionate about the intersection of art and social justice for this exciting reception!
