Ashara Ekundayo hosts the discussion See Black Women.

Arts organizer Ashara Ekundayo is hosting a 2-part discussion with Black female artists about being counted in the Census and the greater society. It’s called See Black Women. 

The artists will also talk about grief and the shift in our culture and visibility. The event is a part of the Come to Your Census campaign, which is using art to inform underrepresented communities about taking the census. 

Part two of the See Black Women discussion airs May 26th. Watch on the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and Museum of the African Diaspora Facebook pages. View a recording of part one here.
