The #SayHerName movement honors the lives of black women and girls killed by police. Each act of this powerful performance lifts up the voices and stories of women and girls of color through spoken word, song, and dance. Featuring family members of the victims of police violence, the program pays respect to the lives of their loved ones by encouraging us to say their names out loud. Curated by Abby Dobson, artist-in-residence at the African American Policy Forum. Cash bar.
Her Dream Deferred
Copresented with the African American Policy Forum
Black women and girls have continually been on the front lines of progressive change movements, using their voices and stories to mobilize intersectional coalitions to dismantle oppressive systems. To celebrate these women, the African American Policy Forum, in partnership with the Hammer Museum, presents the third annual Her Dream Deferred, a series offering substantive analysis on the status of black women and girls in the United States and exploring multifaceted solutions to social injustice. Organized by Kimberlé Crenshaw, Columbia University and UCLA law professor.
All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor.
Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation, and all Hammer members.
The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
