Black Social Change: Preserving the Story
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.
This performing arts event is in collaboration with and in celebration of the documentary.
The premiere of the film Black Social Change: Preserving The Story will be held at Salt Lake Community College Grand Theatre, 1575 South State, Salt Lake City on Tuesday January 19, 2016 at 7:00 pm.
