Join Barrett, The Honors College and the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy for a special event on Street Dance Activism, a model to demonstrate the possibility for performance to disrupt social, economic, and historical paradigms and an alternative strategy for radical social change.

Special guest, Shamell Bell (dance/choreographer and Arts & Culture liaison for the Black Lives Matter network), explores the genealogy of dance used in struggles for liberation, which extends to the African diasporic traditions and war dances. Following the lecture will be a movement workshop that provides foundational tools for the use of street dance in demonstrations as a form of self-care, resistance, and team-building.
