Angel Iset /eye seht/ Dozier has been cultivating her skills as a conceptual artist and curator through Be Connected Durham since 2014. After contributing to an educational curriculum that cemented the authentic storytelling of Michael Brown’s death at the inaugural Black Lives Matter national convening in Ferguson MO, artists, organizers, cultural workers, education, law and medical professionals made a commitment to return home and implement policy, procedures, and programs that encouraged Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) to move through trauma in various mediums of artistic expression as root medicine, affecting real, lasting change. Since founding Be Connected Durham with a presentation called The Experiment, Angel Iset has recruited artistic practitioners and cultural workers to collaborate on more than 150 community arts events, 85% having been to sold-out audiences. 




Program participants will meet at the H.M. Michaux Building, Jr School of Education on the campus of NCCU. Interviewers and guests may attend the virtual meeting.
