Banned, Blacklisted and Boycotted: Censorship and the Response to It (The B-Word Project) is an 18-month campus-wide initiative, beginning September 2011 at California State University, Long Beach. It will present performances and other activities to stimulate wide-ranging discussions that examine what happens when a voice —whether in artistic endeavors, journalism, scientific research or other areas—is stifled through governmental, commercial, or social restraints.
Activities include participation by the performing artists known as the NEA 4 (Tim Miller, Holly Hughes, John Fleck, and Karen Finley); many new course offerings; a reconstructed dance piece by Bill T. Jones performed by CSULB students; an exhibition on the Peace Press; a film series on the Hollywood Blacklist; a visiting artist series focusing on visual artists with informal meetings and lectures; a residency by Sweet Honey in the Rock with performances and workshops on the music of African Americans, and many other events.
