Arts Innovation Talk Series: Respect + Rebellion – The Story of My Voices+Votes
October 29, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
In celebration of the Smithsonian traveling exhibition Voices and Votes: Democracy in America, the Haitian Heritage Museum, has partnered with the Smithsonian Institute and Florida Humanities for the 4th installment of Arts Innovation Talk Series: Vibrance Expressions of Citizenships Virtual event at the Haitian Heritage Museum. We request your participation in the next panel “Respect + Rebellion: The Story of My Voice + Votes”. For this program we’ll engage in a conversation from the birth of our republic in rebellion from a tyrant, through the Emancipation Proclamation and the 19th Amendment, the story of America is the story of the fight for “unalienable Rights.” We will articulate these founding ideals through stories of our fellow citizens seeking the franchise to vote as told in the pages of Florida’s newspapers, and discuss the specific political and media environment of the 2020 election. We will use this discussion to empower participants to consider and articulate their personal priorities as Caribbean and Haitian Americans for their coming vote.
