The artist-activists of Resistance Mic! share stories and politically engaged works that read, move, sing, and speak truth to power.
The streamed October 21 event features Justin Danzy, Alex Marzano-Lesnevich, Oompa, V (formerly Eve Ensler), and a short film by John Lucas and Claudia Rankine. Participate in a live Q&A with the artists and host Timothy Patrick McCarthy following the performances.
The 2016 election inspired a broad-based Resistance not seen in the United States in decades. Since then, people from all walks of life have been protesting, marching, mobilizing, and organizing in an effort to take back the country and create a more compassionate and just world. Artists are vital to this work. Launched on November 9, 2017—the one-year anniversary of the day after the 2016 election—Resistance Mic! is part of the A.R.T. of Human Rights series, an ongoing collaboration between the American Repertory Theater and Harvard Kennedy School’s Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, and presented in collaboration with the literary magazine Pangyrus.
Part of A.R.T.'s Civically Speaking and Virtually OBERON series.
