Kate Levy is a documentary filmmaker, artist and media activist who teaches a class at Wayne State University called “Art and Activism“. She has been hosting a series of public conversations about Art and Activism as part of the class and the series ends this evening with a panel discussion titled “Journalism and Community Organizing”. Joining me on this panel are:
- Monica Lewis-Patrick, a community activist from Detroit and cofounder of the activist group We the People of Detroit.
- Curt Guyette, investigative journalist for the ACLU and winner of the Michigan Press Association’s “Journalist of the Year” award.
- Allie Gross, Journalist for the Detroit Metro Times
- Zenobia Jeffries – Former managing editor of the Michigan Citizen newspaper located in Detroit and associate editor at YES! magazine focusing on racial justice issues.
The event begins at 6:30 and will take place in Room 110 of the Purdy-Kresge Library on the campus of WSU (5265 Cass Avenue in Detroit.) It is open to the public and we hope you’ll join us for what promises to be an illuminating discussion about the intersection of journalism with activism.
