Karen Slack (Opera ’02) and her new film project, #SayTheirNames, are the focus of a recent feature in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Created for Lyric Fest, the short film uses poetry, art, and song—as performed by Ms. Slack and other Philadelphia artists—to celebrate the “tremendous risk and sacrifice” taken on by such Black women as Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells, Fanny Lou Hamer, and Kimberlé Crenshaw in their work for social justice.
