Namdi, of the initiatives currently in progress since the Police murder of George Floyd. And discuss their efforts to create an “Incubator of Leadership”, and the need of our people to develop viable alternatives to the current political structure.
IS THIS NECESSARY?
YES, because of Structural Racism: It ALL must FALL!!!
The Black Reality Think Tank will discuss this unfolding phenomenon in America. Our panel of community activists and thinkers will explore the methodology relating to the deconstruction of structural racism.
Structural Racism is a system in which public policies, institutional practices, cultural representations, and other norms work in various, often reinforcing ways to perpetuate racial group inequity. It identifies dimensions of our history and culture that have allowed privileges associated with “whiteness” and disadvantages associated with “color” to endure and adapt over time. Structural racism is not something that a few people or institutions choose to practice. Instead, it has been a feature of the social, economic, and political systems in which we all exist.
Program Host Dr. William Rogers
“To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time. ”
― James Baldwin
Some historians argue NAZISM is not a foreign idea in American politics. Some even say that the roots of German Nazism come from America. If these things are true, what does it mean for Black people in America?
The Black Reality Think Tank is honored to have as a conversationalist one of the world’s renowned viola and viola d’amore players, Clifton Harrison. Brother Harrison has performed as a chamber musician, recitalist, and in orchestras throughout Europe, the United States, Central America, and Asia. He is the viola player in the acclaimed Kreutzer Quartet with whom he has recorded extensively. As a member of the quartet, Clifton is currently an artist-in-residence at Oxford University. He has been artist-in-residence at Goldsmiths, Southampton, and Bath Spa University and continues a close association with the Royal Northern College of Music.
On top of his many accomplishments and musical honors, he is an American “homeboy” with deep roots in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Durham, North Carolina. He is the grandson of one of the great Black preachers and educators of our time, Dr. Grady Davis, pastor emeritus of Union Baptist Church in Durham, North Carolina. He is also the son of the former Interim Dean of Liberal Arts & Sciences at Milwaukee Area Technical College, Dr. Deryl Davis Fulmer…
The discussion centers around his career as a classical music artist, a musicologist, and a Black man living in England. In the midst of COVID-19 and the murder of George Floyd, how can music minimize our fears and elevate our spirits? This and other questions will be explored.
The program host is Dr. William Rogers and Dr. Bruce Bridges will join the conversation as co-host.
