Sound School Community:
“There is beauty in hearing the voices of people who haven’t been heard.” – Titus Kaphar, artist & New Haven native
Join John Buell and Ms. Nuzzo to celebrate Black history and cultural heritage on Friday, February 26th during office hours and advisory.
Our virtual celebration includes a brief TED Talk by Titus Kaphar, an artist, New Haven native, and founder of NXTHVN who shares his story of becoming an artist as well as the importance of not erasing history, but amending it.
Celebrate Black creators – leaders, activists, authors, artists, poets, photographers, and designers – who have used their voices to share their story. We encourage all to bring a favorite passage, quote, photograph, artifact, painting or other piece of art by a Black creator. Share it and then tell us how their work has inspired you.
Let’s gather to learn, share, honor, + celebrate Black history.
