500 University Avenue, Rochester, NY 14607

In-Person and Virtual*
Since 2016, athletes have protested police brutality and the oppression of people of color by kneeling during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Kota Ezawa’s National Anthem, now on view at MAG, is a multimedia exhibition that reflects on those protests. Join us as Stephen Brauer presents the historical and cultural context for this social movement.
*This program will take place in person and will be streamed live on Zoom.

The in-person event is included with museum admission: reserve tickets here.
