You are cordially invited to attend a special free admission humanities program entitled Art & Social Justice: The Legacy of the Freedom Riders.
This highly interactive discussion and film clips screening of the acclaimed PBS documentary Freedom Riders coincide with our current SUN + LIGHT exhibition featuring the art of Charles Edward Williams. In addition to Williams, distinguished panelists include USF Professor of Southern History and renowned author Dr. Raymond Arsenault, and civil rights activists and Freedom Riders Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr., and Kredelle Petway. This program will focus on the legacy of the Freedom Riders and how organized nonviolent civil disobedience can propel the course of social justice and inspire generations to come.
Following the program’s audience Q & A, the SUN + LIGHT exhibition will be open for viewing, and a reception and book sales/signings will be offered. Seating is limited and attendees are encouraged to arrive early. For more information, contact Adult Programs Manager Laura Putnam at email@example.com.
Dr. Arsenault and Dr. LaFayette, Jr.’s books are available for sale and signing at the program and can be pre-purchased online at The Shop:
Funding for this program was provided by the Florida Humanities Council Community Project Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
