“On a night of looking back we also took time to meditate and articulate the future. Muthi Reed and Angela Davis Johnson are multi-media artists that created The Hollerin’ Space at ROOTS Week – part-installation and part-participatory reflection space, it invited attendees to leave their own visions for the future. During Friday’s programming they prompted the audience to talk with the person beside them about how their work can support Black Lives Matter and Indigenous rights. In the midst of an evening of history we are still challenging ourselves to be active in the present: to commit to justice and write the songs and stories of this current civil rights battle.”
