Social Justice Through The Arts: Images Of Racial Reckoning


This live conversation took place on Thursday, July 29, 2021.

A picture is said to be worth a thousand words. In this Roundtable conversation, we will look at photographs from community marches for racial justice in Seattle, Atlanta, and Washington D.C. to tell the story of Seattle activist TK and her ​journey from average citizen to activist, as she led a local movement that galvanized people of all backgrounds to come together and march for Black lives. This conversation will demonstrate the power of a photograph to motivate all of us to advocate for social justice.

I find that images like these often transcend a specific culture, but how do you think these messages translate internationally? Are they just as powerful when people don't have the same context or history?
