Event Title:
Proud to Be American: History, (My) Story, Isolation, and Community

Inspired by Nikole Hannah-Jones’ 1619 Project essay, the Social Justice Committee examines the language of art to promote social justice and educational equity in varied learning contexts. We invite you to view the art show, Reflecting Futures

The exhibit will be on display from February 9, 2021 – May 15, 2021. On February 11 from 5:30 PM–7:30 PM, join us for an interactive conversation about this work and the implications of being all of who we are in our lives and work, focusing on visual art as an image-based language.
