Dread Scott: Conversation & Flag Raising says
A Conversation on Race, Police Brutality, and Art with artist Dread Scott and activist and community organizer Angela Kinlaw

Followed by Flag Raising of Dread Scott’s A Man Was Lynched By Police Yesterday.

Following presentations at Jack Shainman Gallery, Moberg Gallery, African American Museum in Philadelphia, Rush Arts Philadelphia, and Rhoades College, the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans has chosen to fly Dread Scott's flag, entitled A Man Was Lynched By Police Yesterday, as an acknowledgement of lives being taken in our communities, as an invitation to a public dialogue, and as a sign of hope that history can be articulated, transcended, and put in the service of education and healing.

During this conversation, Scott and Kinlaw discuss the violent consequences of an unresolved history of race relations that have largely defined the past decade of public discourse in America and the ways in which art can be used a tool for mediation and racial reconciliation.
