Blk Studies Visual Movements

Last year, as we were sketching up ideas for future movements of the SIUE Black Studies Program, visual matters were increasingly central to our discussions. And really, saying "mixed media matters" might be even more appropriate since we recognized that audio and digital factors were integral to what we wanted to do.

For today's video post, we've decided to share a mixed media composition highlighting some of our black studies design work. We've synchronized this composition with the one for our light rail project by using a common soundtrack.

Have a safe and relaxing weekend.

audio: Opening of John Coltrane's "Alabama;" excerpt from The Roots' "Clones."
