Greater St. Louis Humanities Festival Event, organized by the Center for the Humanities
October 3, 2 pm
Satori Art Studio, 3003 Locust St., St. Louis, MO 63103
Join us for an exciting afternoon of art, poetry, film and conversation. The exhibit features the works of Damon Davis and De Andrea Nichols, a poetry performance by Cheeraz Gormon, and a screening of documentary filmmaker Katina Parker’s “Ferguson: A Report from Occupied Territory.” Following the film, the audience will have the opportunity to engage all four artists in a roundtable discussion about the intersection between art and activism and struggles for racial justice in the wake of Michael Brown’s death. Jonathan Fenderson, assistant professor of African and African-American Studies at Washington University in St. Louis, will moderate the discussion.
