Art & Racial Justice
Patrice Cullors and Alicia Garza, two co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, were on hand at the Honolulu Museum of Art for a discussion of art and social justice. Their conversation was ably moderated by none other than DAHI lead technical developer and program coordinator. The discussion, which included insightful audience questions and comments from the packed house, preceded the Hawaiʻi premiere of the new James Baldwin documentary, I Am Not Your Negro. The film tracks Baldwin’s later life and the history of the Black Civil Rights Movement through Baldwin’s notes for an uncompleted project on the assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr., each of whom was a friend to Baldwin.
