Ideas Into Action: 4 Intersections of Systemic Racism

Ideas Into Action explores systemic racism and topics of concern in Charleston July 10 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at Simons Center for the Arts. Ideas Into Action recently held four dinners at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in conjunction with its current exhibition CRY JOY PARK—GARDENS OF DARK AND LIGHT by artist Jennifer Wen Ma. Inspired by the history of Charleston, Ma’s installation dramatically explores the juxtaposition between paradise and oppression. Each dinner focused on a single area of concern: education, food access, land & affordable housing issues, and reentry from prison into society. Join us to hear what was learned at these dinners.
