A Beautiful Resistance: Live!

Don’t miss a very special live evening celebrating A Beautiful Resistance from Boston Globe culture columnist, Jeneé Osterheldt!

In her own words, Boston Globe culture columnist Jeneé Osterheldt created A Beautiful Resistance “to carry on the tradition of Black artists and Black journalists in reclaiming the truth of Black folk. Like Frederick Douglass taught us, there is power in representation. Too often, we are measured by our suffering. Blackness must not be defined by our brutalization. We are more than death. When we are depicted by our extremes, the truth of us is lost. We live, fully. Our joy, our dreams, our everyday stories? That's a beautiful resistance.”

Every season consists of a weekly mixtape featuring a short film, a longform story, and a Q&A. The community is invited to share their own beautiful resistance on Instagram. There is music, there is story, there is love. Joy lives here. Join them.

This program is free, thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.
