Event Description:

Explore how music has the power to confront injustice, speak for marginalized groups, and raise awareness of social justice causes.

Recent events in our nation have shined a new light on issues surrounding police violence, race and racism, sexism, and other social justice causes. Using music from the 1920s through today, this workshop invites participants to examine the history of oppression in America and how music can and has been an empowering and liberating force. By discussing our shared history and listening for the commonalities and themes that continue to ring out in song, participants will work with youth facilitators and each other to understand the role they can play in creating a more just society. This inter-generational workshop ends with a call to action for attendees to not only dream, but to act on ways they can improve Central Indiana.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs still requested.

Presented by Kheprw Institute and Dismantling Racism Indiana Chapter. Special thanks to Writing Futures at Marian University.
