Writer and filmmaker Rafael Casal’s Blindspotting (2018), Kat Gordon’s fight for female leadership in advertising, and Nnedi Okorafor’s exploration of African stories in science fiction demonstrate that representation in visual culture has become a key influence in the struggle for socioeconomic, racial, and political equity.

Don’t miss this opportunity to join Casal, Okorafor, and Gordon for conversations that will have lasting impact beyond this day and beyond these walls.

The session commences with comedian and writer Luna Malbroux, and concludes with audience questions and a series of provocative and energetic performances featuring opera diva John Holiday and poet, writer, and educator Chinaka Hodge.
