Join us for an all-day, in-depth examination of approaches for learning, and dialogue about the difficult issues in interpreting the African American experience, presented in conjunction with Grounds For Sculpture’s Joyce J.

We’ll focus on uncovering the complexities in presenting these experiences, anticipating and responding to reactions by different audiences, and creating opportunities to extend learning and dialogue.
