Community Folk Art Center Coming Events

I Too Am America: A Song of Race and Language

Save to Google calendar  Save to desktop calendar    Thursday, March 23, 2017, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM


Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

In Ralph Ellison's speech "What Children are Like," he discusses subcultures in African American communities and how they are reflected through language. In conjunction with the powerful words of Langston Hughes, we are inspired to explore the extent of freedom of speech and the American dream. We are reminding the community of the dangers exacerbated by language in the past and the hope that language can inspire for the future.

This show will allow for direct communication through interactive sculpture; to catch a glimpse into other's experiences with candid photography and subject statements; and it will invite the viewer to observe social benchmarks of our past with poignant collages and prints.

Featuring works from Jamaal Barber, Ann "Sole Sister" Johnson, Kleaver Crus/Black Joy Project.
