2014 Art and Change Grant – $2,500


Julie Rainbow, MSS ’93 awarded Leeway Foundation Grant. Julie will create a public exhibition using video, photographs and narratives called Grits Greens and Griots. In response to the 100th year anniversary of the Great Migration, the exhibit will explore the diverse experiences of African American elders –90 years of age and older – from the North and South. The goal of this project is to produce a public history record that compares the lives of African American elders who remained in the South to those who participated in the Great Migration north to Philadelphia. The exhibit is meant to challenge our perception about our collective understanding of life in the South during the 20th century, and to highlight contributions elders continue to make in many communities
