La MaMa LiveTalks: The Struggle for Black Freedom

Wednesday June 17 at 6:30PM (EST)

La MaMa in partnership with the Center for Constitutional Rights and CultureHub presents 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.

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.

Center for Constitutional Rights Executive Director Vincent Warren will join the panel with other speakers to be announced soon.

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