panel on race & criminality

May's First Friday Art Trail at Studio 4 will feature artworks by Victoria Marie Bee, & have prints & more for sale by Dust Devil Press, Whimsy Daze, Q Ave Press, & many others.

7pm - 8pm, the event "A Push Out into Open Air: A Conversation on Criminality" will take place, a collaboration with graduate students in Texas Tech University's English Department:

As part of the First Friday Art Trail experience, please join us for a provocative conversation on race, injustice, and privilege. We will host a panel discussion that includes a reading of works from various contemporary writers such as Michelle Alexander and Reginald Dwayne Betts. We invite you to engage perceptions of the justice system and all those affected by it. 

In addition to our panel discussion, posters promoting the event will be available for purchase & donations will be taken to support the East Lubbock Community Alliance.
