Presented by The Reading Room HTX

Inspired by Angela Davis's 1985 essay Art on Frontline: Mandate For a People’s Culture, this discussion-driven workshop will dive into the tradition of Black artists whose work has been a catalyst for social enlightenment and transformation. Printed PDFs will be available for attendees to follow along with the reading, and we’ll embark on a reflective writing exercise.


The Reading Room is located inside the CAMHLAB pod near the green X-atrium staircase. If entering the building near the pink neon "Post Market" sign, walk left through the food court until you see the green staircase. For easy access, drive and park past the 713 Music Hall into the market parking lot and enter through the glass doors on the far left. MON -THU, parking is free for the first hour; FRI -SUN for the first 20 minutes.
