Students in Princeton Atelier Course Visualize the Battle Cry

In a spring 2021 Princeton Atelier course conceived and led by past Hodder Fellow and current lecturer in visual arts Mario Moore along with Hughes-Rogers Professor of African American Studies Imani Perry, students worked to give voice to Black Civil War soldiers through videos, soundscapes, and collages that create a through line to modern-day hip hop and our present moment. Learn more about the conception of the course and culminating student work in this video by Danielle Alio and a feature story written by Denise Valenti.
