“Mic Check: The Black Lives Matter Movement in NYC” is a look at the Black Lives Matter movement in New York City. The title of the series comes from protest leaders shouting “Mic Check” to mobilize protesters into a game of repeat-after-me, spreading the speaker’s comments and instructions without amplification, which is not always allowed without a permit. The photographer will be joined by students, activists, and faculty in a panel discussion about Black Lives Matter protests in New York and Long Island.
Panelists: Robert Gerhardt (Documentary Photographer), Marcus Brown (Graduate Student and Activist), Vivett Dukes (Teacher and Activist), Zebulon Miletsky (Assistant Professor, Africana Studies), Christopher Sellers (Director of the Center for the Study of Inequalities, Social Justice, and Policy)
