NEH on the Road: Wrapped in Pride

The Slater Museum of the Norwich Free Academy will present public programming to accompany its hosting of the National Endowment for the Humanities on the Road Exhibition: "Wrapped in Pride: Ghanian Kente and African American Identity." Programming will include a reception at the opening event in which 12 objects in the Slater?s collection, including necklaces, walking sticks, sculpture, masks, and drums will be on exhibition to enhance the NEH exhibition. The Slater will sponsor several internal programs for students and their teachers at the Academy: these will include a workshop for teachers, an essay contest, and a Martin Luther King Day Celebration. The Slater will also extend outreach opportunities through sponsoring transportation to middle and elementary school students in the surrounding areas, many of whom represent new and underserved populations. Finally, a panel discussion of local experts in related history and the arts will be held for the general public.
