IBAR Art and Activism Webinar Series
Dates: 07 Jun 2021 - 05 Jul 2021
It shouldn’t still be happening but it is. In 1963 the late Martin Luther King had a vision of the future in which civil, economic rights and an end to racism would be a hopeful thought in our modern era. ‘I Have a Dream’ captured a time in the States in which Americans held onto that promise.
Two years before his speech a black African American named Barack Hussein Obama was born who would one day become the first black president holding office in the USA. This was the dream Luther King imagined yet it was cut short in recent times with further racism and untimely deaths which led to the protest march entitled ‘Black Lives Matter’.
