Tomashi Jackson: Brown II
With support from Ujima's Ashe Ashe Cultural Assembly Grant, artist Tomashi Jackson organized a community reading and re-release of her publication, Brown II.
The Brown II Book Club was a 5-month reading group which explored histories of educational advocacy, school desegregation, implications of tech policy and algorithms on civil rights, and much more. Jackson worked directly with Ujima staff to distribute physical copies of the publication around Boston, and offered digital copies for non-local participants.
Tomashi Jackson's Brown II project explores the history and legacy of school desegregation in the United States, with a special focus on Boston through artwork and a series of interviews with leading scholars in the field.
