The Power of Black Social Media: Images, Identity, and Resistance

Presentation and Discussion with George Grant
Saturday, October 5th, 2019—12:15pm

Images play an important role in our society, provoking emotions, shaping ideologies and re-presenting identity.

What if the images that you see are not images that speak to your Identity, far less your spirit?

Come sit with your people and have a circle discussion.

Welcome to The Power of Black Social Media: Images, Identity, and Resistance.

Directed by George R Grant.
