These Classical Music Organizations Have Always Been Focused On Racial Equity

The long-overdue work that larger institutions have started on in the wake of last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests has been the day-in-day-out project of some other groups. Joshua Barone talked to people at seven of them — among them the Sphinx Organization, Imani Winds, and Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra — about what they do and what advice they’d give the wider classical industry. – The New York Times

Seattle Theatre Leaders Help The Arts World Understand How To Go Far Beyond Lip Service To Anti-Racist Changes

Theatre leaders met in May to hash out a response to the Black Lives Matter protests and the extrajudicial killings of George Floyd and other unarmed Black people. “They were beginning a process to overhaul the entire ecology of their field, at every level — casting, staffing, fundraising, boards, tech crews, audiences, everything — and inject anti-racism into its DNA. … If this broad coalition of theater makers effectively transforms one part of the arts world in one city, it might just set a ...

Virtually Visit Black Lives Matter Street Art

One enduring element of social movements is street art. Stories are told, lives are honored, and activism promoted through murals and graffiti.

A New Digital Archive Preserves Black Lives Matter & COVID-19 Street Art

What happens when anti-racist protesters gather in the streets and are not met with tear gas, rubber bullets, and batons? For one thing, they make art and graffiti. Lots of it, on walls, streets, sidewalks, courthouse doors, the plywood of boarded-up windows, wherever. Public activist art serves not only as a memorial for victims of state oppression, but as a way to imagine what the future needs and visually occupy the space to make it happen. In the intertwining “mutual relations of the politi...

Can you tell whether it's elevating and not racist to compare Black Lives Matter artists to cavemen?

I'm trying to read "New York’s Sidewalk Prophets Are Heirs of the Lascaux Cave Artisans/What street art adorning boarded-up storefronts tells us about our shared political realities and the ways our stories are connected. A critic’s tour deciphers the signs and symbols" in the New York Times.Maybe to answer my question you need to know more about the racial identification of the writer, whose name is Seph Rodney. I'm just going to give you a sample of the prose:What became apparent to me is that...

The Strange New Life Of Objects In The Coronavirus Era

There are the familiar objects that suddenly seem to glow with importance – toilet paper rolls, Lysol wipes – and then there are the new objects: the to-go cocktail pouch, the ultra-large Burger King social distance crown, the virus piñata to hit and kill, and, of course, Black Lives Matter facemasks. – The New York Times

Bubbling Brown Sugar

It is true that historically the American musical theatre has been dominated by white artists and white stories. There have been a couple of periods of increased activity and evolution in the black musical, in the 1910s and 20s, and again in the early 1970s, but only recently have black artists and stories taken a more active, more visible role in moving our art form forward.New Line has produced Passing Strange but no other explicitly black musicals. We are proud that our casts are always dive...

Here’s How You Remake A Classic Opera To Make It Politically Relevant Today

“The original “Fidelio” took place in 18th-century Spain and explored the vindictive nature of a tyrannical prison governor. Heartbeat Opera’s rendition takes place in modern-day America where an African-American woman named Leah disguises herself as a correctional officer named Lee. She goes to work at a prison where her husband, Stan, is being held in abysmal conditions by a vengeful warden for being a Black Lives Matter activist. – Columbia Spectator
