    Bystander Intervention Communities of Color Unite

    This bystanders intervention workshop will feature a special presentation from Donna Maxey of Race Talks

    This Summer #DontShootPDX kicked off this hosted series of community focused bystander intervention conversations and direct engagement platforms. This months outreach is to Communities of Color and those of Black American Ancestry. All are welcome though these voices are the ones being centered in this space due to the specific context and necessary experience based subject matter.

    There's a history of Misogynoir in America against the Black Woman and it has crippled our black and brown communities. Americas racist history and political struggles to hold us in bondage has developed roots in American Democracy. In today's current events America is becoming known for our political social terrorism. The struggles are real and being silent is complicity. Elders have knowledge to build gaps in understanding and intergenerational solidarity needs a renewal and revival of engagement due to the racist violence happening in Oregon and across the nation. Let's come together in this series which will continue every month at #ART

    Each month Bystander Intervention Dialogues and community building panels will inspire and encourage innovative and direct action for those seeking outreach strategies and solutions to ending racial terror and violence. Building Community Matters!

The evening's performances will run the gamut of performance art, spoken word, singing, and dancing.

    This year our headliner will be Monica 'Spirit' McIntyre (Spirit-They-Them), a Cellist, Vocalist, Lyricist, Wellness Advocate, Sound Healer, Reiki Practitioner, Artist & Black Excellent -- promoting empowerment and healing by any medium necessary. Spirit believes in the power of vulnerability, breath, creating intentional artistic relationships, honoring lovability, being seen/seeing, and growing compassionately through tight places to find authentic expansion. Healing affirmations, meticulous storytelling, self-love and metaphor saturate their lyrics. They use their voice and cello to seamlessly genre blend -- Blues, Soul, Folk, Classical, Reggae and other Diasporic sounds mix into an unforgettable musical landscape.

    Rodney King
    through
    Artists Repertory Theatre

    by Roger Guenveur Smith April 21-23, 2017

    In this riveting performance, Smith unravels the myth of “the first reality TV star.” Rodney King tells the story of a flawed, good-hearted everyman - from his harsh entry into the national spotlight to a lonely death at the bottom of his swimming pool. Twenty-five years after King’s memorable plea to the nation, Smith asks us once again, “Can we all just get along?”
