Conversation: Defiance Project Awards

Alan Flurry

Carolyn Medine, professor of religion and director of the Institute for African American Studies, will lead a virtual conversation March 2 at 4 p.m. centered on the historic Morton Theatre Corporation’s Defiance Project Awards, a series of grants in support of projects "created to document and/or explore the Black Lives Matter Movement and/or everyday experience.”

The event is presented by the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts as part of the 2021 Global Georgia Initiative public events series, in partnership with the Institute of African American Studies, the Morton Theatre Corporation, and Flagpole magazine.

The conversation will be moderated Dr. Medine. The participants are Thomas Brazzle, Morton Theatre Corporation programming committee chair; and four award recipients: visual artists Noraa James and Broderick Flanigan; musical artist Kxng Blanco; and filmmaker Booker T. Mattison, assistant professor of entertainment and media studies in the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Advance registration for the event, which will be conducted via Zoom webinar, is required and available here.
