Black History Month: Invisible walls

29 October 2020, 19:30 - 20:30
Online event

The words 'Black History Month' on a black, red, green, yellow, black striped background

This is a contemporary poem written and performed by Taylor Mitchell. ‘Your silence violates us with violence’ illustrates the amalgamation of British and American culture in relation to race and systemically ingrained racism that has been woven into the fabric of our western entertainment and media.

The poem utilises the metaphor of heroes and villains to address the collective moral compass western society chooses to follow and how that shifts depending on the percentage of melanin within an individual’s skin.

The poem follows Taylor Mitchell’s personal account of blackness in England and Taylor’s experience of other’s stories to create this raw experience.

This event of part of our ARU Black History month series of events.
