From the artist's Black lives matter series

At a time when many of us are grappling with how we can bring about meaningful change in ourselves and our communities, we asked Robin Joyce Miller, artist, poet, educator and activist, back to The Point to talk about what guides and informs her work in diversity, equity and inclusion. Her approach to tackling racism and white privilege is informed by decades as an educator and artist…. and rooted in her faith. Robin also shares findings from her research into Black History on Cape Cod. After retiring to Cape Cod, she and her husband Jim created a series of Black Lives Matter presentations at Cotuit Center for the Arts, where she sits on the board. She’s also on the boards of other local arts organizations as they work to become more diverse, equitable and inclusive.

Robin Joyce Miller is scheduled to provide the sermon at West Parish Barnstable on Sunday, August 1st.
