La Mama LiveTalks: The Struggle for Black Freedom


Add to My Calendar Wednesday, June 17, 2020 6:30pm to 7:30pm


The Center for Constitutional Rights is proud to partner with CultureHub and La MaMa as part of La Mama LiveTalks, conversations with artists, activists and thought leaders from around the country and around the world who join in discussions about art and life in times of crisis.

Executive Director Vincent Warren will join the virtual panel with FIERCE Executive Director Mustafa Sullivan and documentary photographer Laylah Amatullah Barrayn.

We are in an unprecedented moment of two pandemics: Covid-19, which is new, and white supremacy, which is centuries old. Communities and social movements are demanding that we reimagine the role of police in our society as a vital step in defending Black lives, and more people are answering that call than ever before. Why now? Our panelists will give important context to this moment: what has led us here and where we can go. 

You can join this event by tuning in on the CultureHub watch page, or La MaMa's Facebook page to watch and join the conversation. 

This event is part of the Center for Constitutional Rights programming, Juneteenth: Celebrating Black Resistance & Dreams of Freedom.
