Blights Out kicks off its Living Glossary Project with an event that links the current real-estate market to the legacy of slave auctions.
Blights Out presents a reading and rally as part of its Living Glossary Project, which aims to redefine words through presentations by artists, activists, and academics. This event focuses on the word “auction” and connects the modern-day real-estate market and the legacy of slave auctions. This discussion also hopes to draw attention to the eviction of black bars in New Orleans, specifically the recent displacement of Ooh Poo Pah Doo Bar.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit Facebook.
