Communications Staff

Oberlin’s 2013 black history celebration, Black Arts, revisited, reminds us of the power of the arts throughout history to increase awareness and understanding, to honor innovation and talent, and to bring disparate people and cultures together when institutions, beliefs, traditions, and public policies cannot. Featured speakers and performers include soprano Adrienne Danrich, Duke University Professor Fred Moten, performance artist Aisha Cousins, and writer Marlene NourbeSe Philip.
