Where are you? How are you feeling? How are you reacting to this moment? These are the questions that launch this episode's dynamic discussion around systemic racism and anti-racist practices within the fields of arts and arts education. On Thursday, July 16, 2020, TYA/USA* hosted "Centering Black Leadership in TYA," a virtual town hall with Black artists, educators and leaders in Theater for Young Audiences (TYA). That town hall—led by TYA/USA Board Members Idris Goodwin and Dexter J. Singleton, in conversation with Michael J. Bobbitt, Courtney J. Boddie, Gloria Bond Clunie and Jacqueline Handy—held space for exploring the current moment(s) we're experiencing (the Covid-19 pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement) and how different community organizations are, or are not, responding to this moment in time. The panel also discusses the importance of critical examination of systems of oppression within the TYA field and how to meet those systems with thoughtful, actionable responses by implementing anti-racist practices. How can we, as administrators and practitioners, help guide those at the top of predominantly white power structures in dismantling oppressive constructs? How can we identify, interrogate and radically shift oppressive practices and systems to impact needed change? What seeds can we plant with love to build hope and joy through the arts? You'll want to listen to this episode to hear some of the ideas this incredible group tosses around. *Teaching Artistry with Courtney J. Boddie team is excited to announce its partnership with Theatre for Young Audiences/USA to present this important conversation.
