How to Create Change: Celebrating Black Voices –
A Virtual Tour of the NLM
February 23, 5pm
Do you have what it takes to change the world? We think you do! In 2020, we saw demonstrations in towns and cities as the country – and the world – struggled to come to grips with historic and systemic racism.
This is not a new movement, nor is it over. This virtual, hour-long tour of the National Liberty Museum explores the history of civil rights activism in art, protests, political movements, and more. We are highlighting artist and poet Serena Saunders, who is a featured artist in our Philadelphia’s Freedom exhibition.
Serena Saunders is a full-time mother and practicing artist. Native to Philadelphia, Saunders’ core is fine art, but she also creates in the realm of fashion design and writing. Her work as a painter has a fresh, color-strong perspective that speaks to our imagination while the subjects ask of our awareness. It is influenced by her compassion towards youth and community, a sentiment nurtured during her decade spent teaching art and poetry at more than a dozen schools and non-profit organizations throughout the region. Saunders has also served as the Creative Ambassador for the City of Philadelphia and has been featured in numerous local media.
Tickets: Adults $10; Member Adults $5; Students $5. You must register to receive a zoom link.
