What defines the American experience? What makes a community? Inspired by the exhibition Building a Legacy: The Vibrant Vision Collection of Jonathan Green and Richard Weedman, this three part series invites participants to a town hall-style Zoom with local artists and community stakeholders where we'll address these and other questions as we grapple with the effects of a global pandemic and a renewed reckoning with racial injustice.
Art and Agriculture: Black Farming and Foodways, September 26, 12noon
From the legacy of West African rice cultivation to addressing disparities in food access through present-day community farming initiatives, communities of African descent have a long and rich history of agricultural innovation. We’ll explore these traditions through art, and discuss the present-day concerns of Black farmers.
This event is free and open to the public, but requires registration. It will take place on Zoom. Registrants will receive the link to the Zoom webinar one day prior to the event.
