Music as a Tool for Justice

A Reflective Conversation

Music as a tool for Justice event

Liberty and justice for all? In this conversation, we’ll examine what the word “justice” means and examine how it’s applied in Oregon. With the aid of local and national hip-hop music videos and lyrics, we will examine the history of our state, legal anti-Blackness, and resistance movements. We will also examine a critical question: Are we closer to or further from justice for all since 2020? Join writer, artist, speaker, and producer Donovan Scribes for an exploration of Oregon as he lets music guide these critical questions and more about the place we live in.
