Performing Racial Justice - panel discussion and Q&A with innovative Los Angeles-based arts professionals whose work is actively rooted in identity and racial justice, October 18, 2016 in Lower Herrick, sponsored by Oxy Arts.<br />
How can our creative practice actively impact the fabric of society? Why is art integral to every social justice movement? Performing Racial Justice brings together six LA-based arts professionals whose work is actively rooted in racial justice to discuss their practices, and to participate in a moderated panel about creating performance-based work with social impact. The panel was part discussion and part performance, including dynamic LA artists such Aleshea Harris ("What To Send Up When It Goes Down"), Douglas Kearney (The Black Automaton), Bruce Lemon, Jr. (Watts Village Theatre Company), Maya Jupiter (Artivist Entertainment), Traci Kato-Kiriyama (Tuesday Nights at the Café), and Oxy Alum Faith Santilla ("Beats, Rhymes and Resistance").<br />
