Thursday, February 18 at 4:15pm to 5:45pmVirtual Event
Our Revolution Anthem will open with a performance and reading of poetry by Ebo Barton. Ebo will then lead a writing workshop, a series of writing exercises and activities that allow participants to write about their identities and how they fit or do not fit into our world. As a group, participants will create one final “Revolution Anthem” using the Exquisite Corpse Poem as a structure. Participants will be asked a series of questions about themselves and their role in creating a world that exists without barriers or oppression.
The Revolution Anthem will be created and framed by Ebo as a token of the group’s commitment to social justice and inclusivity on their campus and community, but also in their lives.
