Wednesday, January 24

Battell Chapel, 400 College Street at the corner of Elm Street...

Bree Newsome is an artist, activist, and community organizer who drew national attention in 2015 when she climbed the flagpole in front of the South Carolina Capitol building and lowered the confederate battle flag after the massacre of nine Black parishioners by a white supremacist at Emanuel AME Zion Church in Charleston reignited controversy over South Carolina’s state flag. Ms. Newsome’s act of defiance against a symbol of hate has been memorialized in photographs and artwork and has become a symbol of courage, resistance and the empowerment of women.
Newsome is also a co-founder of The Tribe, a grassroots organizing collective created in the aftermath of the 2014 uprising in Ferguson, MO to address similar issues of structural racism and police violence confronting the community of Charlotte, NC. A graduate of New York University's prestigious Tisch School of the Arts, where she received a B.F.A. in film and television, Ms. Newsome has received numerous awards for her short films and performance pieces including the Maryland Distinguished Scholars for Voice, the National Board of Review Student Film Award, and a 2016 NAACP Image Award. She has been named to the Root 100 and the Ebony 100 in recognition of her work on behalf of civil rights.
