Presented in partnership with the UMD Office of Diversity and Inclusion, UMD Office of Multicultural Involvement and Community Advocacy and Black Terps Matter

In an effort to support student voice and action related to the Black Lives Matter movement, The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, the UMD Office of Diversity and Inclusion and UMD Office of Multicultural Involvement and Community Advocacy in partnership with Black Terps Matter announced Vital Signs: Creative Arts for Black Lives Mini-Grants in Summer 2020. Grants have been awarded to artists in the UMD community who are creating projects that affirm Black life and vitality and interrogate white supremacy and anti-Blackness.

In this showcase moderated by BlackLight Summit director Tariq Darrell O'Meally, members of the first Vital Signs cohort will present excerpts of their Vital Signs works and discuss the intersection of their personal experiences with their art.
