About the Kehinde Wiley Speaker Series

This event is part of the Kehinde Wiley Speaker Series, developed in collaboration with Pastor Mike McBride and Sherrie Deans of Live Free USA.

Through panels, performances, and collective healing practices, this series offers a platform to those most impacted by state-sanctioned violence and offers a constructive framework for understanding the intersections of art, suffering, and healing.
