    Lecture: Diary of a Tap Dancer

    4:15pm

    Location: 

    Knafel Center, 10 Garden St., Cambridge

    During her fellowship, Ayodele Casel (RI '20) is working on Diary of a Tap Dancer, a theatrical work positioning tap dance as the driving force of the narrative. This project aims to create a fuller and more accurate picture of the legacy of the art form by centering the voices of its unnamed women within a broader historical context.

    Lecture: no noise disturbed the quiet of the morning

    4:00pm

    Location: 

    Knafel Center, 10 Garden St., Cambridge

Taken together, these histories reveal how carceral and criminalizing strategies sowed the seeds for the ongoing over-policing of black and brown communities.
