“This is Sarah Lewis. You Should Know Who She Is.” The Boston Globe Celebrates Lewis’ Groundbreaking Two-Day Conference on Arts, Race, and Justice.

Sarah Lewis is the visionary art historian and bestselling author whose “Vision and Justice” course at Harvard quickly became core curriculum. “Even in its infancy, the course was special,” says The Boston Globe in a profile and video celebrating Lewis’ history-making, two-day conference where dozens of the brightest Black creative thinkers, including Ava DuVernay, Carrie Mae Weems and Teju Cole, will come together to interrogate the role of the arts in relation to vision, representation and justice.  

“This is going to be a legacy action. People might not realize it now, but they will,” says The Boston Globe. The New York Times is also celebrating this historic event by republishing Lewis’ essay about the racial bias built into photography.  

 

In the video below Lewis explains the way that images shape our notions of justice
