The Black Lives Matter movement, although originally founded in the U.S. in 2013, has moved worldwide in the last few years in an aim to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in the violence inflicted on Black communities. The realities of “combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy”, as written on the Black Lives matter website, are intrinsically linked to geographical location, and to the political, economic, and social structures in those countries. 

Join this panel of international speakers including journalist Moha Gerehou (Spain), DJ and music business professor Akua Afram (U.K.), and musical artist Ann-Shirley Ngoussa (France) as they share their personal and professional views on the present and future of this worldwide moment of reckoning.

This session is moderated by Chris Wade, who graduated from the Master of Arts in Global Entertainment and Music Business program in 2014 and currently serves as the director of Creator Force and an adjunct instructor at New York University’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music.
