Join the Northwest African Museum (NAAM) and MOHAI for a virtual dialogue about democracy in the United States. Gennette Cordova, writer and founder of the nonprofit Lorraine House, will explore the topics of voter suppression, demographics that are included and excluded from the voting process, how to sift through candidate information, including their personal reflections on participation/non-participation, and the historical significance of those choices. Please join us for this important conversation, moderated by NAAM’s Public Programs and Community Engagement Coordinator, Moni Tep.
About NAAM: At the heart of the African American experience in the Northwest is the story of our journey to this region, the establishment of our vibrant community, and the ways in which we have survived. To tell this ever-unfolding story, Northwest African American Museum’s exhibitions and programs feature the visual arts, music, crafts, literature and history of African Americans in the Northwest. Cognizant of the black community’s continuous evolution, NAAM focuses on African Americans whose route to the new world was through slavery as well as recent immigrants arriving from places such as Somalia, Sudan and Ethiopia. NAAM’s mission is to spread knowledge, understanding, and enjoyment of the histories, arts and cultures of people of African descent for the enrichment of all.
