Event Details

Dec. 10 is Human Rights Day. Join us at Open Season — an evening of multimedia art and conversation about our country’s culture of confinement. What are the societal conditions that led to the creation of our current system of policing and prisons? The event, created by the Human Rights Project at The Urban Justice Center, includes dance performance curated with Dancing While Black, with support from Urban Bush Women. The evening will also feature film, visual art and the vision and voices of leading thinkers and artists:

  • Dr. William Jelani Cobb, UConn Professor and New Yorker contributor
  • Bryonn Bain, Poet and New York University Professor
  • Esther Armah, Syndicated Radio Host, The Spin
  • Taneya Gethers-Muhammed, Brooklyn Public Library
  • Lumumba Bandele, NAACP Legal Defense Fund
  • Paloma McGregor, Choreographer and Director of Angela’s Pulse

This event is open to all. A $15 donation is suggested, but no one will be turned away for a lack of funds.


(Wednesday) 6:00 pm EST
