Japan for Black Lives presents the second installation of “Break the Silence, Break the Violence,” a series of Zoom webinars on racism, black history and culture. Following the murder of George Floyd, Japan-based professional dancer Terry Wright and his team led by web director and creative Naomi Kawahara sought to elucidate related issues to a Japanese audience. As protests over police brutality and racism have grown in Japan, they has noticed an increased awareness of the realities of racism both here and abroad.

To further deepen the dialogue and facilitate meaningful discussions, the second webinar deals with stereotypes and cultural appropriation. Panelists include influential individuals in the dance and music industry, including dancer and choreographer Nubian Nene, Japanese rapper Awich, breakdancer B Boy Ynot and choreographer and USC professor d. Sabela Grimes.
