Black Lunch Table Community Roundtable 

(BLT Session 2)
Session two of the BLT is open to all of the Hudson Valley communities. Imagining the lunch table as a discursive site where social connections are made, organizing is planned, social hierarchies revealed, and power dynamics are played out, this session will offer focused conversations on the divisions and connections that exist within our communities, while also laying out new productive relationships to continue the movement for dismantling institutional racism. A meal will be served.

 

 


The Black Lunch Table (BLT) is an ongoing collaboration between artist and UNC Assistant Professor of Art Jina Valentine and New York-based, 2017 Storm King Outlooks artist, Heather Hart. The project was first staged in 2005 at the preeminent artist residency Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. The BLT has since taken the forms of audio archiving sessions, salons, peer teaching workshops, meetups and Wikipedia edit-a-thons.

BLT events are audio-recorded and transcribed in order to further authenticate both the community and its voices. These recordings will become part of an online dynamic archive dedicated to gathering the experience and perspective from around the world. Questions?
