Exhibit on Neglected Black Voices in Mississauga Closes
If you missed the Black Sauga Voices exhibit, a community-based conversation led by youth exploring the black experience in Mississauga, you have one last chance to take in the project.
The thought-provoking exhibition will be closing with a reception (which is open to the public) on Friday, March 31. The event will kick off at 7:00 p.m. and end at 9:00 p.m.
The reception will boast a panel discussion moderated by Suelyn Knight and it will take place in the Celebration Square Glass Pavilion. The discussion will involve experienced lecturers, community members and artists sharing their perspectives on their lived experiences.
Light refreshments will be served.
Although it's the last event of the exhibit, it'll be more than worth attending.
Ever since the deeply troubling death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin in 2012, the Black Lives Matter movement -- a response to his violent death at the hands of excitable neighbourhood watch coordinator, George Zimmerman -- has picked up tremendous momentum and invaded the American and international political consciousness.
Now, in the time of Donald Trump and heated debates over black rights and representation in the community, it’s crucially important for individuals and organizations to facilitate open and challenging conversations about the lived black experience in the suburbs.
The exhibit featured workshops presented by acclaimed Malton-raised artist Quentin VerCetty.
