The Things That Divide Us: Meditations
October 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Dr. Rhonda Y. Williams
MLK Jr. Visiting Professor, Department of History, MIT John L. Seigenthaler Chair in American History Vanderbilt University
There are so many “things” that divide us – that create tyrannical perimeters, borders, boundaries and walls; that order the way we look at each other and “other” others; that perpetuate hierarchies; and that all too often tragically legitimate and elaborate ignorance, misunderstanding, inequalities, violence, oppression, and death.
This performance-lecture … through narrative poetics, music, and images … cogitates on some of those “things,” with the aim
of both bearing witness and hopefully stimulating thinking about ways to vision … something else.
A dialogue will follow.
