Featuring Patrisse Cullors, Angela Davis, and Yara Shahidi
When another Black life is lost to police brutality, the media often focuses on death and hashtags. But what about the stories of those who survived? Artist and activist Patrisse Cullors (co-founder of Black Lives Matter) had this in mind when she created POWER: From the Mouths of the Occupied in 2015. A documentary performance piece, POWER focuses on the unseen and unheard experiences of those in the Black community facing criminalization and state violence on an every day basis. Join Public Forum as we frame excerpts from POWER with a conversation between Cullors, legendary activist Angela Davis, and actor/youth organizer Yara Shahidi ("grown-ish").
