To close out the first day of “Vision & Justice: A Convening,” Carrie Mae Weems performed excerpts from Grace Notes: Reflections for Now, which she created to commemorate the Emanuel Nine. Pianist Vijay Iyer accompanied her on stage. The two-day event considered the role of the arts in understanding the nexus of art, race, and justice.
