In Dialogue: Smithsonian Objects and Social Justice

March 11, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC+0


Thursday, March 11, 5 p.m.

Online via Zoom

Heighten your civic awareness through conversations about art, history and material culture. Each month, educators from the National Portrait Gallery will partner with colleagues from the Smithsonian and other institutions to discuss how historical objects from their respective collections speak to today’s social justice issues. What are the qualities of great leadership? Together with educators from the National Air and Space Museum and the National Women’s History Museum, we will celebrate Women’s History Month and explore this key question in relationship to portraits of activists Sojourner Truth and Sylvia Rivera, and pilot Bessie Coleman. Free—Registration required.
