Arts Against PostRacialism was held at Queen's University Wednesday, October 25th.
“The installations and events involved in this project are meant to evoke a response and to assert blackness in new ways in university campuses, where they’re often excluded,” says Dr. Howard in part. “It’s a call upon people to make the connections that are often hidden between this practice of blackface and other structural practice of anti-blackness that surround us.”
