Sites of Resistance

Closing Reception

Please join us for the closing reception of Sites of Resistance: An Exhibit Exploring the Geographies + Histories of Social Change in New Orleans.
 
Sites of Resistance works to reframe a dominant narrative that has obscured New Orleans’ historical role as a site of intense organizing, legal strategy, labor struggle, and civil rights activism. By elevating lineages and spaces of dissent and marginalized stories of inter-racial collaboration, as well as histories of direct conflict and challenge in contested spaces, we hope to reconnect our audience with the possibilities for making change that have been erased from our civic framework.
 
Curated by our Public Programs Manager, Sue Mobley, this exhibit and the associated event series are made possible through the generous support of the Surdna Foundation.
 
Complimentary refreshments provided. Free and open to the public.
