Reid, Rock, Taylor, and Youngblood will discuss the ways their creative work challenges the status quo and the role that artists play in breaking down the walls of oppression and injustice. The Stamps Gallery exhibition Story, Word, Sound, Sway explores subjects of alternative histories, Black identity, and storytelling; meshing performance and performativity, and the interplay of the oral and aural in one’s experience of the world.
