From street art to sculpture to film, the project honors "that diverse collective dedicated to protecting our human rights, no matter race, age or gender." Davis will discuss "All Hands on Deck" and screen excerpts from his documentary "Whose Streets?," which was included in the U.S. documentary category of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.

This event is organized by the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art in partnership with the K-State Black Student Union. Co-sponsors include the K-State art department and funding in part by the Student Governing association Fine Arts Fee; Dow Center for Multicultural and Community Studies, K-State Libraries; and American ethnic studies department.
