Opal22 Arts and Edutainment brought together local activists of the Leicester community from all walks of life for an inspiring Spoken Word Protest Arts Performance.
Our project entitled ‘Am I Allowed’ was part of the ‘fly the flag’ project (@flytheflag70 ) For the 70th anniversary they focused on the universal declaration of human rights – We were challenging the mainstream narrative of black men! Including all manner of high achieving black men, from architects and engineers to solicitor’s, and even horse riders.
We were joined by people of all ages to celebrate excellence and achievement whilst challenging society’s faulty perception of black men. The piece received a phenomenal response from the public and the participants had an amazing time, coming away from it more empowered than ever!
Am I Allowed?
This project highlighted the issues relating to young black men in the UK. Arts Council Funded.
