Something's in the Water
2019 marks the 400th year observance of Jamestown, Virginia, and specifically, the earliest record of enslaved Africans arriving in 1619 to a strange new world - the tumultuous beginnings of a nation-state later called the United States of America.
Jan 21-22, bridging Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the National Day of Racial Healing, Initiatives of Change USA hosts Something's in the Water. Two days of artists, cultural historians, creative influencers, grassroots activists and organizations in a range of activities including conversations, installations, exhibitions, workshops, film screenings, live music and performances. With increased national and global efforts to center inclusive histories, truth and reconciliation processes, and racial equity today, the sessions will ask, how far have we come in 400 years?
Initiatives of Change is a global NGO who is a client, a strategic partner, and an organisation packed with colleagues who have rapidly become friends.
