African art has been an essential tool for activism in the ongoing struggle for peace in America. This workshop uses roleplaying, poetry, and writing to depict and analyze the reality of life for Africans in America throughout their time in this country, bringing to life a deeper understanding of the production of justice. It reaffirms why arts and activism have been such essential tools for equity in an ongoing struggle for peace. The participants are split into 3 groups: writers/poets, actors, and activists.
