3 online events on the life and work of Fannie Lou Hamer

The final conversation in a 3-part series on the life and work of Fannie Lou Hamer inspired by Dr. Keisha Blain’s new book, Until I Am Free: Fannie Lou Hamer’s Enduring Message to America, moderated by Yomi Wrong in conversation with Reyma McCoy McDeid, Azza Altiraifi, and Claudia Alick.

NW Arts Streaming Hub Narrative

They created some incredible community partnerships – like their work with The Vera Project developing and piloting a digital media production program for a dozen BIPOC youth.

Black Imagination Salon

Claudia Alick reached out to natasha marin who had collaborated on a few clubhouse experiments together and pitched a conversation exploring liberation and resilience.

Claudia imagined a space for them fueled by pleasure activism and access intimacy that used digital tools to gather responses and make aggregate dreamscapes. They both invited Black activists, artists, organizers and community members. The final group gathered was all Black women. The beginning moments opened with a conflict. There wasn’t an understanding that the space needed to be Black exclusive.

Below is one artifact from our time dreaming together.
