Black Social Change: Preserving the Story

January 15, 2016 at 6:30 pm in the Larimer Center at Rowland Hall

Are race relations in Utah so misunderstood that Utahns don’t understand the blatant racism experienced and reinforced everyday? Is Utah behind understanding the impact of skin color in our community?  Is it the responsibility of a community to identify harmful blind spots in our cultural competency and bring them into view?

Help us celebrate, listen to, and learn from Black leaders, artists, and social change agents in our community. Black Social Change (BSC) is a multidisciplinary event integrating haunting and hopeful narratives, film, soulful spirituals performed by Lyric Baritone Robert Sims of Chicago, as well as choreography and theater performed by local dancers and choreographers Sofia Gorder and Notasha Washington.
