The University of Dayton's Human Rights Center and PROOF: Media for Social Justice are proud to announce the inaugural run of Ferguson Voices: Disrupting the Frame, a photo exhibit open from January 17 - February 3 at the Roesch Library First Floor Gallery on the University of Dayton campus.
Ferguson Voices emerges from the work of the Moral Courage Project, a team of UD students and program coordinators that conducted innovative oral history research in Ferguson, Missouri in May 2016. Featuring powerful portraits and compelling audio recordings, the exhibit provides critical texture to the story of Ferguson by focusing on profiles that fracture the dominant narrative. Ferguson Voices highlights the contributions of average people who found the courage to stand up during moments of unrest.
Friday, Jan. 20, 4 - 6 p.m., Roesch Library First Floor Gallery
Jimmie Briggs, activist, author, and Moral Courage Project co-coordinator, will join us for this opening event.
The Moral Courage Project team is thankful for the continued support of the Human Rights Center and the College of Arts and Sciences. Additionally, the opening reception is generously sponsored by the office of the Dean of University Libraries, and promotions and programming are brilliantly executed by library staff, Ione Damasco and Katy Kelly. Finally, Ferguson Voices contributes to UD's 2017 commemoration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Moral Courage Project is grateful for the help of Merida Allen, Victoria Bordfeld, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
