How can art, artists, and cultural institutions move from perpetuating colonialism to confronting, repairing, resisting and ending colonialism?

Join Boston-area thinkers, institutions, entrepreneurs, activists, city officials, and artists for a discussion inspired by national observances of the 400th Anniversary of the arrival at Jamestown of the first Africans to be sold into bondage in North America.
