Event description

Description

Are you an artist? Do you feel there's something you want to express that could help society as a whole? What is it and how would you do it? These are questions Patricia Jerido, a trained social worker and consultant with over 30 years experience in social justice work, and Macky Alston, an acclaimed filmmaker and Auburn’s Senior Vice President, Strategy and Growth, have been tackling.

Jerido's prior experience includes working on human rights issues in the Manhattan Borough President’s Office, and as co-director for Client Services at the Minority Taskforce on AIDS, where she worked with women incarcerated at Rikers Island. Alston’s films include Love Free or Die - PBS 2012; Hard Road Home – PBS ’08, The Killer Within – Discovery Films ’06, Questioning Faith – HBO ‘02, and Family Name – PBS ’98. He has won at Sundance twice and received the Gotham Open Palm Award, three Emmy nominations, and appeared widely in the press, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Today Show and The New York Times.
