My Soul Will Be A Star – Virtual Exhibition Opening & Artists Talk

Join us for a virtual artists talk with three artists from both Brooklyn and Queens, introduced by African Voices and LLHM!

In April 2021, National Poetry Month, African Voices and the Lewis Latimer House Museum (LLHM) collaborate on an exhibit:

“My Soul Will Be A Star – The Resilience and Creativity of Our Immigrant Communities

To guide and comfort all the souls that are, And welcome others to their final home.”

This exhibit is a virtual/interactive/visual exploration in the strength and resilience of Brooklyn and Queens immigrant artists who are striving in their communities during this age of COVID-19, racial reckoning, and political unrest. The title comes from Latimer’s Poem xi, “My Soul will be a Star.” It will be on view 4/23-6/30/2021.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the city council.

6:30pm-7:30pm EDT
