Citizenship and Racial Narratives | Vision & Justice || Radcliffe Institute

In the first panel of “Vision & Justice,” Alexandra Bell, Jelani Cobb, Nicole Fleetwood, and Makeda Best discuss citizenship and racial narratives, focusing on material culture in the public sphere and what messages emerge that help promote racial understanding. The two-day creative convening considered the role of the arts in understanding the nexus of art, race, and justice.
