Authors in candid, live conversation reflect on the topics that matter most during this unprecedented time. In this presentation authors and experts weigh in on the Black Lives Matter political and social movement that dominated headlines in 2020. They will discuss the incidents and the histories of anti-Black racism in North America, and today’s revived protests against police brutality, state violence and anti-Black racism. Tune in each day of the Festival to hear new speakers in critical conversation about the topics shaping today’s new world.

Featuring panelists: Rodney Diverlus, Dana R. Fisher and Robyn Maynard.

Moderator: Angelyn Francis
