Sitting with the Elders: Stories of Black Athenians
An exhibition by Broderick Flanigan

On view: January 10 – February 9, 2019

"When an elder dies, it’s as if a library has been burned to the ground. The stories, the voices, the history, the places, and the legacy that were held inside all disappear. Sitting with the Elders uses art and story to capture the spirit of voices long gone and to amplify the voices of those still among us whose lessons we need today."
