King Boston looks forward to this exciting event, where Imari Paris Jeffries will be joined by Lori Nelson of the Mayor's Office of Resiliency, in kicking-off a one-on-one with world-renowned conceptual artist, Hank Willis Thomas, who is most-known for his works primarily with themes related to perspective, identity, history and pop-culture.
Following, a panel of local Black artists, curators and space activators, will engage in a discussion on how symbols, public artwork, and community space have been used to maintain a power system of oppression and inequity, within Boston. Panelists include Makeeba McCreary, Museum of Fine Arts Boston; Greg Ball, KBX Media; Sheena Collier, Boston While Black; Michael Curry, Mass League; and Jha D. Williams, Mass Design Group.
Together, let's reframe the historical narrative of Our City, to be representative and inclusive of the Black and Brown experience.
