Special Event

The City Talks: Telling Our Stories

Thursday, June 1, 2023
7:00 pm–8:15 pm
Edward H. Linde Gallery (Gallery 168)
Included with General Admission

Black art can be a vehicle for storytelling, allowing generations to pass both trauma and triumph down through time. Although Black artists have been foundational creators of America’s history and culture, they are often unacknowledged contributors to the nation’s story. Join this conversation with Boston community leaders about what it means to have a “seat at the table” and why representation is vital in art institutions.

Presented in partnership with the Royall House and Slave Quarters.
