Black Lunch Table: BlackLivesMatter Roundtable
We welcome you to Black Lunch Table's two-part event, "Black Lives Matter Roundtable'!
Imagining the lunch table as a discursive site where social connections are made, organizing is planned, social hierarchies revealed, and power dynamics are played out, the sessions will offer focused conversations on the divisions and connections that exist within our community, while also laying out new productive relationships to continue the movement for dismantling institutional racism.
Are you or someone you know an artist "of note" of the African Diaspora who has lived or worked in Bed-Stuy or Crown Heights? Suggest their name for us to focus our research on for the edit-a-thon event! This edit-a-thon series engages the public in creating, updating, and improving Wikipedia articles pertaining to the lives and works of visual artists of the African Diaspora. Participants will be provided with a list of pages to add or edit, which includes local black visual artists.
