Rise and Fail of the N-Word

I was so happy to be a part of a great team of people that organized this exhibit at Kehler Liddell Gallery in Westville.  The work of Rhinold Ponder was shown for a month and I had the opportunity to facilitate the opening and closing discussions with the artist and community members. It was sponsored by the William Casper Graustein Memorial Fund, organized by Kisha Zullo and included spoken word performances hosted by Hanifa Nia Washington and The Literary Happy Hour.

It was a joy to finish off this experience with a racially and generationally mixed group of community members laughing and sharing their thoughts of healing from the impact of white supremacy and violence. Great opportunities to address the healing needed that lingers behind the n-word.
