Join us for a virtual panel discussion with FIU Professors Valerie Patterson and Andrea Queeley. Special guests include photojournalist Vanessa Charlot, filmmaker Amberly Alene, Human Rights activist Rinu Oduala, community activist Alexey Rodriguez, and sociologist Tanya Saunders. Our conversation will aim to examine how artists have responded to anti-Blackness over time and within various national contexts.

This panel is part of the African and African Diaspora Studies Program 11th Annual Humanities Afternoon and is in honor of the exhibition, Disrupting Anti-Blackness: Artists Voicing the Truth.

The panel is co-sponsored by The Steven J. Green School of International & Public Affairs and the African and African Diaspora Studies Program at Florida International University.

This event is free and open to the public.
