Dear Mr. President: Freedom Project Brain Café
The Brain Café is a public forum that brings together artists, scholars, experts, and community members to share their knowledge and experiences in an open dialogue with the audience.
This Brain Café will ask questions about the roles that race and class play in shaping one’s interactions with law enforcement and the criminal justice system in America. The evening will begin with a performance by spoken word poet Christopher Johnson, hip hop dancer Sokeo Ros, and musician Rachel Rosenkrantz Riemer. Christopher has direct experience with the prison system and his poetry will touch upon some of those experiences.
This Brain Café is made possible through major funding support from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, an independent state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
This event is part of the creation of Freedom Project and partial funding comes from Brown University Creative Arts Council and Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies.
