The Story of Slave Rebellion Reenactment: Art That Reclaims Buried History, And Summons Liberation Today
With Artist Dread Scott In Conversation with Andy Zee, Revolution Books spokesperson.
In November 2019, revolutionary artist Dread Scott brought together hundreds of people to create a powerful performance piece in Louisiana. In the costume of those times, they retraced the path of the largest rebellion of enslaved people in U.S. history, the German Coast Uprising of 1811. You may not know about this uprising, because it is suppressed history.
Dread will tell and illustrate the story of this live work of art. He'll then be in conversation with Revolution Books spokesperson Andy Zee to discuss slavery then and in its modern forms, resistance and revolution, the importance of art in society, and the great need for radical and revolutionary art in these urgent times.
$75 includes gift book; $20 general admission; $10 students/low income. Buy tickets through Eventbrite.com.
