As the co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, Janaya Khan has become a leading voice in the global crusade demanding social transformation, justice and equality.
    Known as Future within the Black Lives Matter movement, Khan is a black, queer, gender-nonconforming activist, staunch Afrofuturist, and social-justice educator. With a background in communications, Khan's work is underpinned by a deep understanding of the transformational power of language, metaphor, and democratic discourse. Khan illustrates this through a powerful and profound message urging engagement and activism toward justice for all.

    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Little Building
    Beard

    Honors Program Lecture with Grant Farred, Professor of Africana Studies and English at Cornell University

    Because of the historic role he played in desegregating baseball, Jackie Robinson has been overdetermined as the de-racialized figure of tolerance and integration par excellence. That is, Jackie Robinson as simultaneously the exemplary integrationist, as the restrained, disciplined Negro who made black players tolerable to white America and Jackie Robinson as the (now) eviscerated political cipher who "transcends" race by making it, in the face of the (receding, denuded) history he made, a matter of "history" – that political configuration which belongs, incontrovertibly, to a moment that is past. In concentrating on a singular, combustible event, this presentation renders Robinson as a figure of conciliation: as the subject who acts, from the very first encounter, politically.

    This is a choreo-poem, created by the cast, that reflects on the meaning of country. Through music, movement, poetry and rap, students reflect on the promise of the US to its immigrants, and reconsiders (and rewrites!) the Declaration of Independence in light of recent national events. It is a performance about hope and despair, grief and faith, and, finally, overcoming.

    The EmersonTHEATRE Playmaking Project (ETPP) is a program in which Boston area high school students (grades 9-12) develop and perform original pieces through playmaking focused on issues that affect their lives. Playmaking uses a variety of theatre structures, such as improvisation, character exploration, scene work, movement and monologue.
