Boston is renowned for its arts institutions, which historically have made space for certain kinds of artists and conceptions of art. How is Boston elevating and amplifying new voices and new approaches to the Arts? How are we transforming who gets to make and consume art? Where does bias persist and how do we rectify it?


Join the Boston University Initiative on Cities, the Boston University Office of Diversity & Inclusion, and WBUR CitySpace for "Black Boston: Transforming the Arts," the first in a four-part discussion series featuring respected Black leaders from across Greater Boston.


Speakers:


Makeeba McCreary, Patti and Jonathan Kraft chief of learning and community engagement, Museum of Fine Arts


Catherine T. Morris, founder & executive director, BAMS Fest


Maurice Emmanuel Parent, executive director, Front Porch Arts Collective; lecturer of music theatre, Boston University


Moderator:


Crystal Williams, associate provost for diversity & inclusion, Boston University; professor of english & award-winning poet


The Black Boston Series was created to provide a forum in which to examine our city’s progress toward inclusive access, equity, and opportunity—and where we still fall short. The sessions will focus, respectively, on Arts & Culture, Community Health, Technology, and Politics and take place between March and June, 2020. We believe these four themes represent areas where Boston is a national leader, but are also where critical gaps endure.
