#NoBanNoWall: Alternative Fact & Resistance Practice Panel, with Larycia Hawkins

In the context of ALTERNATIVE FACTS, how do we RESIST systems, policies and governments that employ the same tactics of exclusion as INCARCERATION and JIM CROW against marginalized and minority bodies at the intersection of ART and ACTIVISM? Former Wheaton College professor Dr. Larycia Hawkins, subject of The New York Times Magazinestory: “The Professor Wore a Hijab in Solidarity - Then Lost Her Job,” offers a public talk and leads a panel discussion on solidarity with Muslim Americans. Panelists include Khadine Bennett, Director of Advocacy and Intergovernmental Affairs with the ACLU of Illinois, Fred Tsao, Senior Policy Counsel at the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights and Sadia Nawab, Youth & Arts Manager at the Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN). Featuring performance by Azhar Usman.
