Join Paul Rucker for an intimate hour of conversation, listening, questions and answers. Among other topics, we’ll spend time with his FOREVER series, a portion of which is currently on exhibit at BIMA. In his words, “Forever acknowledges civil rights martyrs that have not, and will probably never appear on the US Postage Stamps; not just the well-known supported and acknowledged civil rights leaders, for instance, but the legions of people who were unwilling participants, victims of racially motivated violence.” Viewers are called both to consider and to act: “What if our criteria (for identifying civil rights martyrs or commemorating them on stamps) were an acknowledgment that aimed not just at putting the past behind us, but taking responsibility for it. Restoring to view what is often pushed away, and making something whole from both our owned, and un-owned, experiences.” This event is taking place as a Zoom meeting. Presenters’ and attendees’ cameras and microphones will be on for this event.
