The Power of the Word
Ahimsa Timoteo Bodhrán (artist and organizer), Kamilah Forbes (Executive Producer, Apollo Theater), Ebony Noelle Golden (artist and strategist), and lê thi diem thúy (poet) discuss the impact of history on literary and artistic practices with moderator Roberta Uno (theatre director and Director, Arts in a Changing America). Discussion is followed by a performance of selections from 125th & FREEdom by Ebony Noelle Golden and ensemble

About the Event: Artists, thinkers, activists, academics, and community leaders gather for a symposium of conversations, performances, and open studios exploring artistic, social, and political perspectives on the extraordinary world-changing events of 1968, the fifty years that followed, and the promise of the next fifty years. Artistic interventions and multi-disciplinary conversations across visual and performing arts, activism, literature, film, and poetry will take place in the historic period rooms—including the Board of Officers Room, Veterans Room, and second-floor Company Rooms.

Admission to each conversation or performance is first come, first served. Space is limited.
