Event Details

In conjunction with People on the Move: Beauty and Struggle in Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series, join Sunny Sumter, the Executive Director for the DC Jazz Festival, in the special exhibition galleries as she facilitates the third #PhillipsConversation talk. Sunny’s discussion focuses on themes of identity, community, and what it means to be an American.
This series of monthly open conversations serve as a platform for audiences to further engage on larger issues represented in both special exhibitions. Some discussions address existing political and social movements related to themes in the exhibition. Each conversation begins with a “big idea” and follows with questions related to the monthly #PhillipsConversation prompt. Live tweeted by the Phillips (@phillipsmuseum), these in-gallery conversations are facilitated by experts related to migration, discrimination and segregation, and community and identity.
