MY PEOPLE, OUR STORIES: Media X Art X Activisim 
Since the inception of the American experiment, there has been a lack of accurate and holistic depiction of the black experience in media and art. However, a new wave of change-makers has been able to use their chosen medium to inform, inspire and spark revolutionary action. This session will address the responsibility of the creative and seek to address two important questions — Where do we go from here and how can we use media and the arts to bring awareness to the past and imagine a more inclusive vision of the future? Presented by Al Jazeera
