Thomas Allen Harris, filmmaker of "Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People," will be part of the "Art as Activism" forum at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center. Joining him will be MacArthur fellow Dr. Deborah Willis of the Tisch School of the Arts, and mixed media artist Delita Martin. Washington University professor Dr. Ila Sheren, who writes and teachers about the connection between art and social movements. That's pretty high-powered lineup for the MTCC's "501 to 501 Partnership Program."

The discussion begins at 6:30 p.m. at the museum, 501 W. 9th St.
