Natalie Hopkinson - A Mouth Is Always Muzzled: Six Dissidents, Five Continents, and the Art of Resistance

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, February 6, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Hopkinson’s inspiring meditation on the role of art in resistance draws on a wide range of artists as role models. Writing in the vein of John Berger and bell hooks, Hopkinson, an assistant professor in Howard University’s graduate program in communication, culture, and media studies and a fellow at the Interactivity Foundation, traces the artistic legacy generated in response to racism, xenophobia, and misogyny and pays tribute in particular to Berger and to painter Bernadette Persaud, poet Ruel Johnson, historian Walter Rodney, and artist Kara Walker. Operating at the nexus of the aesthetic and the subversive, these artists are social visionaries, harnessing the power of the imagination in service to a just, diverse, non-violent future.
