Speak Up: Tell Your Story!

May 10, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free and open to the public

Join the ACLU of Kentucky at 21c Museum Hotel Louisville for an evening of exploring civil liberties through the eyes of youth. Young leaders from the community will share their personal journey of political power through spoken word and storytelling. Come and learn how youth are Speaking Up in Louisville.

We encourage you to arrive early or stay after the program to view the newest exhibition at 21c Louisville, “Dress Up, Speak Up: Costume and Confrontation.” Addressing how discrimination and injustice have shaped both identity and its artistic representation, the artists featured in Dress Up, Speak Up reimagine, restage, and re-perform iconographic imagery from Renaissance painting to present-day media to expose gaps in both art and history, and to confront the legacy of embedded experience.
