Transcript of Below The Beat: Art Access As A Revolutionary Tool
Toolkit One: What Is An Activist?
6 Minute Mic Check!
1) When I say the word "activist", what image comes to mind? What makes someone an activist?
2) Take three minutes to draw what you think an activist looks like. It can be a person who is (or was) alive in the world, or someone who feels real in your mind.
3) What informed your picture?
Today we're going to look at one person who identifies as an activist. As you listen to this person's story, I want you to find three things you have in common with them.
As you're listening, I want you to find one new word that you haven't heard before, and guess the definition using your context clues!
Hold Up, Wait A Minute
Michael Brown was an 18 year old boy who was killed by police violence in Ferguson, Missouri. Do you remember hearing his story? How did that make you feel?
Have you ever felt like responding to a social issue before? What inspired you? What stopped you?
Buzz Word Box
Equity: the quality of being fair and impartial
State Violence: acts of terrorism conducted by a state against foreign targets or against its own people
What are some other words that feel new to you?
Full, As In Whole
Has it ever felt like you can't be yourself, or can't keep it 100, whether at home, with your friends, or at school?
Aurielle talks about her inspiration for activism being Black Women who bring their "full self" to their homes, communities, and schools. What would it mean for you to be
your "full self"?
This Can't Be What Freedom Looks Like
What does freedom look like to you?
What doesn't feel like freedom?
Taking care of myself is not self-indulgent, It's self-preservation. And that is an act of political warfare.
- Audre Lorde
How do you take care of yourself? What feels empowering about the way you practice self care? Why do you think an activist would consider that "political warfare"?
In what ways has your picture of an activist changed after meeting Aurielle? What came up in the video today that made you think more about what it means to be an activist?
Do you have any other take aways?
