Reparations Realized: Opening Reception

  • DC Arts center 2438 18th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20009 United States (map)

Using photography, sound, video, installation, and public programming; Reparations Realized, invites artists to dream up what reparations should be and how this country has fallen short on its debt. This show is comprised of US-based Artists descended from enslaved Africans invites artists to dream about what our 40 acres and a mule would look. By envisioning what reparations should be, we are moving past the conversation of why and into the when. We can better manifest and actualize reparations for ours and future generations when we dream together.
