The company of the upcoming production of SomeBody invites the Princeton community to join them to reflect and embody through communal art-making the ongoing tragedy in the U.S. and beyond of Black death. In dominant culture today, it seems that Black death is often only acknowledged when defined through sensationalized murdering, mutilation, and violence to Black bodies. However, the company invites you to join them in acknowledging through art the often forgotten, ignored, dismissed but equally as insidious acts of murder against Black people happening both around us and by us. If you plan to participate, join the group at 3 PM for a brief beginning conversation and reflection on what might really be meant by the Black death happening in our daily lives, our neighborhoods, our cities, and our countries.

Ultimately, this is an event that hopes to create space to both validate the mourning and grief of our Black community and provoke the self-reflection, empathy, and compassion of our non-Black community. So regardless, if you have thought deeply or very little about race and your context in it, the group encourages you to come, bring your whole self, and share in this important community dialogue and event with the SomeBody team. Art supplies will be provided!
