YPT's second Silence Is Violence event was Who's Next?, an artistic exploration of the #BlackLivesMatter movement in 2016. Centering around the work of YPT Young Artist Fellow Dominique Butler, Who's Next? wove together a tapestry of voices and stories grappling with institutional racism and violence against black communities.
