Video: Equality & Respect

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Antonius Roberts and the entire Hillside House Studio & Gallery family for allowing us to co-host Equality & Respect at the beautiful Cumberland Street property. Roberts’ collection by the same name along with performative pieces attracted over 200 people to experience art activism on September 25, 2014.

There were performances by Keri Sherman, Myra McPhee, Tina Johnson, and Leslie Tynes, and an educational address by Marion Bethel – 2014 winner of the CARICOM Triennial Award for Women – on the Bahamas Women’s Suffrage Movement. Equality & Respect t-shirts were sold at $50 each with proceeds going to The Bahamas Crisis Centre.

If you missed Equality & Respect, all is not lost. Jackson Petit captured the highlights and included them in the fantastic summary video below.
