Exhibition Talk, “Ferguson Voices: Disrupting the Frame”
February 12 at 4:30 pm in the Doane Library
Denison welcomes this traveling photo exhibit from the University of Dayton's Human Rights Center and PROOF: Media for Social Justice. “Ferguson Voices” represents part of the Moral Courage Project, a team of University of Dayton students and program coordinators who conducted oral history research in Ferguson, Missouri in May 2016. The Moral Courage Project seeks to display courageous acts by ordinary citizens, foster an understanding of violence in our world, and inspire others to take a stand against this injustice. The exhibit features powerful portraits and compelling audio recordings of the events from Ferguson community members, highlighting displays of courage during difficult times. As part of the talk, staff and students from the University of Dayton will provide a panel discussion.
This exhibit is brought to Denison as a collaboration between Narrative Nonfiction Writing, Black Studies, the Denison Library, and the Denison Museum, and is on view in the Library atrium from February 5th until February 23.
This exhibit is presented courtesy of the University of Dayton Human Rights Center and PROOF: Media for Social Justice.
Artist Talk: Emory Douglas
February 21 at 5:30 pm at the Denison Museum
The Denison Museum in conjunction with the Department of History present the work of Emory Douglas, renowned revolutionary artist and minister of culture for the Black Panther Party. Douglas made his mark on American culture through his thoughtful and provocative work. He served as art director and lead illustrator for the Party’s newspaper, for which he created widely distributed prints that now reflect American history and society in the 1960s and 1970s.
