Learn from the University of Puget Sound’s Race and Pedagogy Institute at the second event of their online series as they discuss questions and themes surrounding the Kinsey African American Art & History Collection at the Tacoma Art Museum. Conversations by panelists will focus on three different pieces in the Kinsey Collection, and questions such as “What do these artifacts remind us about history, the sites of knowledge, and how we remember historical relationships and events?” and “How are we reimagining these histories today?” will be explored. This event is free and registration is required.
