Black Lives Matter @ Pratt: Shut Em Down Teach In
BLM@Pratt Teach In presents an incredible program Shut Em Down conference, a three day event with generative workshops, panel discussions, critical performances featuring students, community members, and faculty.
Black Lives Matter @ Pratt is a group of students, faculty, staff, and alumni working together to transform their campus culture, to address systemic racism, and creating dialogues around the racial inequality within their institution, and fostering activism within their campus body. It means confronting anti-Blackness openly and honestly.
Their speakers range from top international poets, to invested grassroots activists, to tenured professors. Confirmed presenters include: Salome Asega, Maureen Benson, Brother(hood) Dance, African-American Policy Forum, Black Nerd Problems, Falu, Camonghne Felix, Amin Hussain, Shola Lynch, Tongo Eisen Martin, Jive Poetic, Clint Smith and Tim Seibles. We are excited for you to join this collaborative movement.
Check out the event #SayHerName: An Evening of Art and Action led by NOW-NYC activist Abby Dobson on Friday, February 24th. The night will feature a variety of art forms with specific emphasis on spoken word poetry and music. Through performance, the artists will seek to lift up the names and stories of Black women who have been victimized by state violence and killed by the police. Together we will say their names and honor their lives. RSVP here: https://goo.gl/forms/
