Reclaim MLK Day with We Charge Genocide and the EAC

Date: 
Sunday, January 18, 2015 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

The Evanston Art Center and Insight Arts are pleased to collaborate once again in conjunction with the Evanston PublicLibrary's Martin Luther King Jr. Day program. This year we are so honored to have with us Monica Trinidad and Todd St. Hill from the Chicago organization We Charge Genocide (the grassroots organization that recently made headlines when they addressed the United Nations in November 2014).

Evanston Art Center Director of Education Keith Brown and Insight Arts Executive Director Craig Harshaw invite audiences to engage this new generation working in the spirit of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements as they speak about the ongoing struggles for racial justice in the United States and their experiences in Geneva. We will personally hear from and frame a broader discussion in relationship to the emergent #BlackLivesMatter campaign.
