The Stand Against Racism™ is a movement of the YWCA with the goal of bringing people together from all walks of life – across the country – to raise awareness that racism still exists.
A panel of speakers and two spoken-word artists will contribute and discuss different perspectives and insights on the topic of internalized racial oppression. The discussion will explore ways to dismantle racism by challenging both internalized racial inferiority and internalized racial superiority.
World Premieres, April 26, 7 pm

Romare Bearden’s seminal work, “The Block,” is a six-panel painting that depicts life in Harlem through its neighborhood buildings. As an acknowledgement of Bearden’s powerful work and community spirit and the recent 100th anniversary of his birth, we invited artists to create an artwork that celebrates their favorite block in Hartford.
The chosen works will be on exhibit Tuesday, May 6, until Friday, June 27.
