Humor and activism have always existed in a unique position in our society, being seen as spaces for cultural analysis. Standup comedy often addresses under-discussed truths within the human subconscious and as a result can initiate cultural change, while activism is often at the forefront of that change. Issue 010 of Antenna::Signals will drop Wednesday, September 12, examining the theme of Stand Up! by giving voice to those whose work connects to humor or activism, and where they intersect to build a more joyous and equitable future.
This issue will include stories and presentations by:
Madeleine Grace Kelly – Artist and Yoga Instructor at ReNew Accelerated High School
Mwende Katwiwa – Poet, Activist and Community Organizer with Women with a Vision, Inc.
Tabitha Mustafa – Founder of the New Orleans Palestinian Solidarity Committee
Mary Lingwall – Client Services Co-Coordinator at New Orleans Abortion Fund, Inc.
Andrea Armstrong – Law Professor and Founding Board Member of The Promise of Justice Initiative
Tirock Moore – Conceptual artist working primarily with themes related to white supremacy, racism and systemic oppression
Geneva Joy – comedian and founder of Black Girl Giggles Comedy Festival
Hosted by DC PauL
Food by Fritai NOLA
