Tues, Jul 14 – Creating Art in the Era of Black Lives Matter
July 14 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
How can art help us protest, change, heal, and learn? Novelist Tope Folarin, a Nigerian-American writer, Board Chair of the Institute for Policy Studies, and Vice President of Content and Storytelling at the Local Initiatives Support Corporation, will share his insights on this powerful question. His debut novel, A Particular Kind of Black Man, was published last year to wide acclaim.
Mr. Folarin was educated at Morehouse College, and the University of Oxford, where he earned two Master’s degrees as a Rhodes Scholar. In 2010, he served as a Newman Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies. In 2013, Mr. Folarin won the Caine Prize for African Writing for his short story, “Miracle.”
