A GLIDE TALK WITH RHODESSA JONES AND LATEEFAH SIMONAdded to the calendar on Tuesday Dec 22nd, 2015 11:53 AM
A GLIDE Talk with Rhodessa Jones and Lateefah Simon. Join us! GLIDE is proud to continue its thought leaders’ series in partnership with the members of the Society for Classical Studies with acclaimed storyteller, interdisclipinary artist and social justice activist Rhodessa Jones who joins champion of criminal justice reform and social change visionary Lateefah Simon in conversation at GLIDE’s Sanctuary on Friday, January 8.
This discussion between two respected thinkers will touch on topics such as women, incarceration, stigma of HIV/AIDS, expressive arts, violence, healing and recovery, mythology and social justice following a special performance from The Medea Project: Theatre for Incarcerated Women/HIV Circle. This performance represents an unique opportunity to gather different approaches to myth. We hope that exciting new perspectives on the contemporary power of myth are generated by bringing classicists, performers and social activists together.
