The evening will begin with a guided walkthrough of the exhibitions, followed by a panel discussion between writer Chaédria LaBouvier, exhibiting artist Oasa DuVerney and more. They will explore how the act of bearing witness might be considered a form of protest, and unpack the collective actions necessary to forge the path forward.
