Anthony Romero is a Boston-based artist, writer, and organizer committed to documenting and supporting artists and communities of color. In this lecture, Romero will discuss his new multimedia research and visual art project that includes a collection of related but discrete works which attempt to articulate how indigenous populations, under European colonial rule in Australia, South Asia, and the United States, were controlled through the criminalization and legislating of native sound and music practices. Taken together, these histories reveal how carceral and criminalizing strategies sowed the seeds for the ongoing over-policing of black and brown communities. Free and open to the public.
