Public Forum

When another Black life is lost to police brutality, the media often focuses on death and hashtags. But what about the stories of those who survived? Artist and activist Patrisse Cullors (co-founder of Black Lives Matter) had this in mind when she created POWER: From the Mouths of the Occupied in 2014. A documentary performance piece, POWER focuses on the unseen and unheard experiences of those in the Black community facing criminalization and state violence on an every day basis. Join Public Forum as we frame excerpts from POWER with a conversation between Cullors, legendary activist Angela Davis, and actor/youth organizer Yara Shahidi ("grown-ish").

The Public Theater’s PUBLIC FORUM is a space where art, ideas, and action collide. Public Forum creates exciting opportunities for communities to engage deeply with current events, original thinkers, and the most pressing questions of our time. We energize civic responsibility by inviting people from all backgrounds to share, converse, and connect.
