In 2016, Culture Restoration Project, Inc.. in partnership with the Delaware Art Museum with support by University of Delaware Museums, University of Delaware Africana Studies (previously BAMS) and sponsored by Delaware Humanities Forum presented the “Black Arts Movement: Art, Social Activism and Revolution to Affect Social Change” symposium as a part of Richard Raw Week!!
This is the first official release of this footage.
We are releasing this during Black History Month 2020 to start a resurgence of the arts and dialogue about the arts in Garvey City (Wilmington, Delaware). Our hope is that this will eventually influence social change in our city. We implore you to watch, listen, and contemplate the concepts and perspectives presented during this symposium.
The Black Arts Movement symposium was created to have real lasting impact on the arts in Garvey City. Although it has been a few years since the symposium, its intent has not been lost and the work it was meant to do will continue.
The momentum is starting. Conversations are necessary. Watch, dialogue, and stay tuned because the work continues!!!
