Vision & Justice | Friday | Part II || Radcliffe Institute

FRIDAY, APRIL 26
The Friday afternoon session of “Vision & Justice: A Convening” featured conversations that ranged from the Obama-era initiative Turnaround Arts to the importance of narratives in the prison system. Joy Buolamwini also performed her spoken word piece “AI, Ain’t I a Woman?”—which preceded a further discussion on algorithmic bias. The two-day event considered the role of the arts in understanding the nexus of art, race, and justice.
