“Art has the power to demand truth and justice that isn’t bound by the markers of class, race, region, gender identity, or tradition. Art, in all its varied forms, is a form of resistance” (Khalilah L. Brown-Dean). Reflecting on Brown-Dean's idea of art as a form of resistance, Art for Politic's roundtable participants will discuss questions such as: What role does art play in the anti-racism movement? How can art’s power help us demand justice for Black people in America? How can we use art to resist epistemic, structural, and physical violence? What can our work do to highlight the true narrative of what BIPOC experience every day?
