Throughout the course of this 10-week multimedia collaborative art project, adults of all ages from the Bronzeville area will use performance and public speaking to explore issues related to incarceration and the criminal justice system, drawing connections between the past and the present.

Led by professional artists, participants will work together to create a compelling, dynamic art project that will be shared with the community and the public at an Open House on Saturday, May 12th.

Course text: The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander.

 

Participants are highly encouraged to attend all ten weeks. Group size is limited and advance enrollment is strongly recommended.
