Equity & Diversity in the Arts

March 10 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Community Conversations #2 Equity & Diversity in the Arts

Featured Speaker: Dr. Naomi André (professor and the author of the book Black Opera; History, Power, Engagement)
Performers: TBA
Moderator: Tasha Hunter
Panelists: Naomi André, Anthony Davis, and others

Author Dr. André speaks opera, black performers and of blackness. She is joined by Anthony Davis, composer of The Central Park Five, on a panel about equity and experience.

Long Beach Opera believes that discussions inspired by art should extend beyond the lobby of the theater. For this reason, LBO is using its 40th anniversary season theme, Justice, as a catalyst to present its brand new event series The Community Conversations Initiative. This initiative features five “Conversations” and three youth programs and will create community-wide discussions about race, equity, and the justice system throughout Long Beach.

All events are free to the public. However, space is limited; reservations are strongly suggested. You can also join the conversation on our Facebook group; Facebook.com/groups/LBOConversations.

The community conversations are supported by a grant from the Knight Foundation.
