Join the Human Rights Lab and White Snake Projects for a panel discussion about what freedom-making means within the deeply carceral context of contemporary America. A Q&A will follow the moderated conversation.
This is the final event in a three-part series. You can view the first two events on our Facebook page.
This series is a prelude to Death By Life, a virtual opera presented by White Snake Projects, which explores the intersection of systemic racism and mass incarceration. It also features a virtual art gallery, To Breathe, featuring artwork by currently and formerly incarcerated artists.
