Chalkbeat Tennessee office hours at Crosstown Arts
Join us for our next installment of office hours. We'll be stationed in Crosstown Arts' exhibit Art/Race/Violence. We think the exhibit informs and fosters meaningful community conversation, both things Chalkbeat strives to do. Bring a friend and stop by to tell us what stories we should be telling and what you think of the exhibit. Here's the description from Crosstown Arts: "Art/Race/Violence: A Collaborative Response is a multidisciplinary project organized by visual culture historian Dr. Earnestine Jenkins and artist Richard Lou in collaboration with Crosstown Arts. Through this project, local artists collectively explore intersections of race and systemic violence through the lens of cultural expression. Conceived to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Ell Persons’ very public murder by members of the Memphis community through the act of lynching, the project was further inspired by recent events to memorialize lynching sites in the broader Memphis community in an effort to bring about greater understanding of racial oppression and violence in the South."
