Initiatives of Change USA is partnering with 6Pic Innovation Center and I AM MY LIFE on this knowledge connection event specifically for Richmond high school, early college-aged youth and adults who work on Thursday, April 11th from 4-7pm. This experience will engage young folk with Blackademic (Black community building and PoC centered knowledge production) individuals and spaces.
We invite you to join us for an early evening of deep discussion and media-art making. The goal is to create a platform representing the depth and diversity of experience within Blackness. A panel of intersectional scholars who work in Black popular culture and studies across the range of the African diaspora will share their work and perspectives.
Following this, there will a be a mixer hosted by 6PIC’s Blackademic in Residence, Chaz Barracks. Refreshments will be provided.
