Courageous Community Conversations: Race and Art

Join the Conversation Bending Towards Justice: African Americans in American Art

  • Martin Luther King, Jr. once said “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” Join us to examine that arc through African American history enshrined in American art. From colonial era portraits, to 19th century Jim Crow prints and Civil Rights photography, this presentation will provide an overview of African American oppression, struggle and progress towards equality. Presentation by Culturally Curious (https://iamculturallycurious.com).

Registration is requested.

This event is part of our Courageous Community Conversations series; please visit http://www.goffstownlibrary.com/communityconversation for more information.

This year’s Courageous Community Conversations are focused on race and diversity in America. Our reading list and conversations are designed to help us understand many racial and cultural issues, as well as provide a starting point to open up the conversation about race in Goffstown, and hopefully, in other surrounding communities. In our present social environment, it is important to be racially and culturally diverse, and to be socially aware. By using these books to learn and grow, we hope to take part in the conversation about race in America.
