STRANGE FRUIT: SpeakEasy on Safety
From the state sponsored ritual of lynching to the unconstitutional policy of stop and frisk, our communities have experienced undue violence and policing on our bodies. Through centuries of disenfranchisement and invisibility we have used our cultural elements and our voices to confront and end the relentless targeting and assumptions. Come Speak Easy about your experiences of violence and policing in New York. Create and experience art from our communities that addresses ways we want to build resiliency and safety for our collective lives. YOU ARE INVITED TO: co-design & build art installations with artists that speak deeply on our stories and the legacies of violence in New York City; participate in inter-generational, multi-cultural conversations; discover artists; Sing your policing Blues; TELL YOUR STORY!
