NoMüNoMü is an intersectional arts collaborative working to challenge the perpetual systems of oppression within and beyond the art world. The organization writes: “We work collaboratively with artists + grassroots organizations at the intersections of race, age, gender and orientation. We curate radical exhibitions; provide space and resources for local artists to create; and work with activist and cultural grassroots movements to organize through the use of screen printing, resource sharing, and art production.”
The performance will be streamed live via Youtube from Baltimore’s Creative Alliance.

The Racial Justice Concert Series (RJCS), a collaboration among Johns Hopkins students, faculty, and staff, harnesses the power of music to bring awareness to issues of racism in Baltimore, and to support Baltimore organizations that focus on racial justice work. The RJCS features performances by Baltimore musicians and provides a platform for racial justice organizations to educate audiences about their efforts. The RJCS is cooperatively produced and funded by the Johns Hopkins Program in Arts, Humanities, & Health, Johns Hopkins Center for Music and Medicine, and Johns Hopkins International Arts + Mind Lab.
This Racial Justice Concert will open the Reckoning with Race and Racism in Academic Medicine conference, sponsored by Johns Hopkins Department of the History of Medicine, Center for Africana Studies, Program for Racism, Immigration, and Citizenship, and the Center for Medical Humanities & Social Medicine. This conference includes historians, sociologists, medical educators, medical trainees, advocates and activists from around the United States to work towards a more inclusive version of historical reckoning. Over two days, we will examine the centrality of history as a tool and as a method to understand the intersections of structural racism and health past and present, aim to build anti-racist curricula and commit to engaging with structural racism as a key aspect of medical training and policy change.
