On the Avenue: Contested Narratives

On the Avenue: Contested Narratives
TONIGHT @ 5pm EDT via Zoom

Would you read a white supremacist’s diary? How about save it from destruction? Today, FIU’s Washington Avenue cultural sites roll up their sleeves to tackle a messy subject: curating and educating around relics with heavy histories. Find out how museum and arts professionals juggle the priorities of preservation, ethics, and our personal discomfort when it comes to objects that keep secrets and hold hatred. Free and held on Zoom.
