Art for the Planet, Art for the People!

Author, artist and independent journalist Esther Iverem hosts an environmental justice event that is free and open to the public. She'll be reading passages from her picture book "Olokun of The Galaxy", which honors the millions of people who were subjected to the Atlantic slave trade, while honoring the Earth's oceans and ecosystems. She'll also exhibit her award-winning Olokun figures and discuss how the Black Green Movement intersects with art, literature and current affairs.

For more information about this event, contact Dr. Paula Parks. To request accommodations in advance in order to attend or participate in this event, contact Reggie Williams.
