Conversations On Culture: Race, Art, Myth = Justice

The Conversations on Culture: Race, Myth, Art = Justice series, happening in October and November of 2020, are designed to address the systemic injustices that continue to oppress and limit the possibilities of the majority of the nation’s Black, Afro Latin, Latinx, Native, Asian, LGBTQIA+/Two Spirit, People with Disabilities, and economically poor White communities. Community Elders, including, curators, artists, scholars, and public intellectuals that have built and supported the development of Black, Afro Latin, Asian, Latinx and Native arts organizations. They share a long history of community activism in the arts and have made a critical impact on race matters, social justice issues, as well as for shedding light on artists’ historical calls of resistance. At Rutgers, Professor Nelson Maldonado-Torres, in the Department of Latino and Caribbean Studies, brings us this program co-organized with one of RAICCS’ partners, the Creative Justice Initiative (CJI), and from CJI, President, Marta Moreno Vega, who is also the Director of the Caribbean Cultural Center, NYC.
