Say Her Name…Too

This will be a discussion moderated by Dr. Antonio C. Cuyler and Professor Lawrence M. Jackson about the spaces that lie between Dance and Social Activism. This event will feature a screen dance viewing of Dance artist Lawrence M. Jackson’s work, “Say Her Name…Too." A short screen dance, this work will combine cinematic elements with choreography and explores the lives of 5 Black women who died at the hands of law enforcement. The goal of this work is to bring awareness to the often-invisible names and stories of Black women and girls who have been victimized by racist police violence. Black women have been killed by the police at alarming rates, though we rarely hear their names. Knowing their names is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for lifting up their stories which in turn provides a much clearer view of the wide-ranging circumstances that make Black women’s bodies disproportionately subject to police violence. To lift up their stories, and illuminate police violence against Black women, we need to know who they are, how they lived, and why they suffered at the hands of police…this film aims to do just that…
