Although 2020 has seen some very loud public protests, in many private settings people remain silent about the devastating and ever-present legacy of systemic and individual racism in our culture.  The only way to end the silence is to begin speaking and to begin listening.  Our project, It’s Monumental . . . Ending the Silence will engage our campus and community in a public dialogue using Art and Communications to explore the dynamics of racism/anti-racism, anti-blackness, white supremacy culture and the fluid concepts that develop as we expand our understanding of these phenomena in our culture. Works created across our campus and community will be featured in a virtual festival, late in the Spring Semester of 2020. We hope you will want to get involved.
