Across the United States — and the entire world — film and art have become central to ongoing movements for rights and justice, which has intensified since the killing of George Floyd. This event honors leaders and artists at the forefront of social change, engaging in dialogue about their work and perspectives on mobilizing anti-racism, equality, and social justice.
This discussion is a part of the virtual opening of the exhibition “The Art of Anti-Racism and Social Justice,” an expanding archive of student art dedicated to public service and social justice. Presented in partnership with The Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students and the Freshman Seminar Program, this initiative is an extension of the 2020 Fall seminar, “Moving Millions with Art and Film for Human Rights and Social Justice,” taught by filmmaker and social justice advocate Indrani Pal-Chaudhuri, a Tribeca Film Festival Disruptive Innovation-awarded director, Princeton alum, and co-host of the Global People’s Summit at the United Nations.
Hosted by Indrani and #WeThePlanet UN curator Kunal Sood, this event brings together leaders of contemporary art and justice movements, to share insights to inspire positive cultural and socio-political change including actress Mo’Nique, activist Hawke Newcome, actor Eugene Brave Rock, musician Daryl Davis, COVID-19 physician and rapper Lazarus, and actress/producer Gina Belafonte.
