. . . first in thought, then in action. | Anthony Romero || Radcliffe Institute

As part of the 2019–2020 Fellows' Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Anthony Romero RI '20 shares his work on a multimedia research and visual art project that includes a collection of related but discrete works that attempt to articulate how indigenous populations, under European colonial rule in Australia, South Asia, and the United States, were controlled through the criminalization and legislation of native sound and music practices. Taken together, these histories reveal how carceral and criminalization strategies sowed the seeds for the ongoing over-policing of black and brown communities.
