Art. Reality. Black Lives Matter. The Mural Artist Discussion: Advancing Race Equity through Art with Terri Lipsey Scott 

Artists drive innovation. They are dreamers, visionaries and catalysts that help us better understand the world as it exists and as it could be. This exciting webinar will feature the creative renderings and insights of the 16 artists who crafted the Black Lives Matter Mural positioned in front of the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum in St. Petersburg, FL. Each artist will share more about their letter, and their process. It is the first time all artists will come together in one space.

Artists will express their interpretation of:

  • the current race equity moment, post George Floyd
  • the ongoing tragedies faced by black people at the hands of police departments
  • the acceleration of the Black Lives Matter movement
  • and answer questions from the audience (Q&A session)
Moderated by Terri Lipsey Scott,
Executive Director of the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum
