Representation in the Arts

Join DUBAC & Westphal on Wednesday, December 8th at 6:00PM EST via Zoom!

Drexel University Black Alumni Council (DUBAC) and the Westphal College of Art, Media, and Design invite you to this panel discussion to explore the various impacts people of color have had across the sectors of music, fashion, film, and television as a response and inspiration to each other. Learn about the ways social activism has propelled the conversation around cultural identity, celebration and representation in the arts.

Following the discussion, panelists will open the floor for questions from the group.
