#ArtLitPhx: Brown Bag Series: Examining Whiteness through Art

Brown-Bag-seriesJoin the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy for a conversation with Dr. Chris Boyd. Bring your lunch at noon and be ready for an hour of discussion exploring the intersection between art, psychology, and transformative social change. Boyd explores how a socially engaged imagination can be used to confront common notions of whiteness and create a paradigm shift.
