About this Event

The Museum has brought together a group of artists who will discuss the impact of the twin pandemics of COVID 19 and Racial Unrest on their craft. Facilitated by Michel Martin, host of NPR’s Weekend All Things Considered, artists Raymond O. Caldwell, Producing Artistic Director of the Theater Alliance; Photojournalist Tony Mobley; Ebony Toliver, Comedian, Producer and Founder of LikeDat Productions; and Robert Battle, Artistic Director of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will discuss how they have risen to the challenge of shuttered performance spaces and how they have used their art to uplift diverse voices, to bring solace, and to spark discussion about current issues.
