Black History Month: Public talk with artist Deborah McDuff Williams
February 24, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
There are many kinds of seats: Seats at the top. Seats at the table. Bus seats. Front seats. Back seats. Are you comfortable in your own seat? What seat are you willing to fill to help out your community? Before Rosa Parks, Claudette Colvin was arrested at the age of 15 for refusing to give up her seat to a white woman on a segregated bus. The artwork of Deborah McDuff Williams introduces other Black American pioneers who helped pave the way for the celebrated heroes that have filled important seats in Black history. Hear from Williams during this free event. Reservations are required and can be made here.
