The ‘I Am…’ workshop, will celebrate, embrace and highlight diversity and culture in Norfolk. It will be the remaking of the ‘I Am A Man’ poster and happenings, that was a declaration of civil rights, during the Memphis riots in 1968, by the African- American sanitation workers, and was subsequently taken-up at the Martin Luther King memorial march. Later on, conceptual Artist Glenn Ligon’s ‘Untitled (I Am A Man)’ 1988, captured and explored the slogan to confront the themes of language, identity, race and sexuality.
