Name: Denison: 'Ferguson Voices: Disrupting the Frame'
Date: February 5, 2018 - February 23, 2018
A traveling photo exhibit emerging from the University of Dayton’s Human Rights Center and PROOF: Media for Social Justice. “Ferguson Voices” is part of the Moral Courage Project, a team of UD students and program coordinators who conducted oral history research in Ferguson, Missouri in May 2016. “Ferguson Voices: Disrupting the Frame” features powerful portraits and compelling audio recordings of the events from people in the community. This exhibit is on view in the Library atrium from Feb. 5 to 23. From the project description: “The exhibit provides critical texture to the story of Ferguson by focusing on profiles that fracture the dominant narrative. ‘Ferguson Voices’ highlights the contributions of average people who found the courage to stand up during moments of unrest.” In addition to the exhibition, the University of Dayton’s staff and students who curated the exhibition will visit Denison at 4:30 p.m. on February 12 for a panel discussion. This exhibit is brought to you by the Department of Narrative Nonfiction Writing, Black Studies, Denison Library, and Denison Museum.
