It has been 50 years since the historic Civil Rights and Liberation Movements of the 1960s and 1970s. In this workshop with Walidah Imarisha, participants will imagine themselves 55 years in the future, and engage in writing entries for the 2070 People’s Encyclopedia about current issues and events now, as a way of imagining how the world today can lead to the world we want.
Offered in partnership with the University Museum of Contemporary Art.
