Black Took Collective Closes Out Fall Arts and Lectures Series

The last Arts and Lectures event of the fall semester features Black Took Collective, a performance group composed of three award-winning LGBTQ Black poet-performers: Duriel Harris, Dawn Lundy Martin and Ronaldo V. Wilson.

Black Took Collective’s presentation is at 6 p.m. on Dec. 9 on Zoom. The event is free for Cal State San Marcos students; community members, faculty and staff can make a donation if they wish.

The collective challenges both popular conceptions of racial identity as well as conventional artistic practices. This event will consist of live writing, poetry, music, dance, drawing, film and critical race theory presented in an engaging and lively format designed to encourage reconsideration of identity, language and embodiment, and enlist audience participation and conversation. 

CSUSM’s Arts and Lectures series offers a diverse lineup of artistic, cultural and scholarly events every semester based on input and proposals from students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, all events in the fall series are occurring virtually. Attendees can reserve tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website.
