Dread Scott is an acclaimed American artist whose work has garnered significant public and scholarly attention and has been widely exhibited in the US and abroad. Scott describes his work–which powerfully addresses such topics as American imperialism, symbols of nationalism, police brutality and police murders of African Americans, the history and legacies of slavery, and anti-Black racism in the US – as “revolutionary art to propel history forward.”

These workshops are being organized in conjunction with Dread Scott’s public lecture, “On the Impossibility of Freedom in a Country Founded on Slavery and Genocide,” Feb 21 (7pm, Herter Hall 231 @UMass Amherst). Our hope is that students attending the workshops with Dread on the 22nd will also attend the public lecture on the 21st.
