Hi couchsurfers !
For Black History Month, come to discover at the Espace Georges Emile Lapalme the exhibit about Martin Luther King «I have a dream»
Description taken from: http://www.moishistoiredesnoirs.com/index.php/en/activites?event=13
«It's a unique exhibit where six artists have been invited to revisit and reinterpret the famous 1963 "I Have a Dream" speech, through their own eyes and their own experiences. What has become of Dr. King's dream? How do his ideas manifest themselves in the context of today? Carolyn Jean Martin, Stacey Tyrell, Jamel Shabazz, Anna Jane McIntyre, Daniel Iregui and Helmer will explore these concepts through a variety of means of expression, including sculpture, photography, painting, and multidisciplinary techniques. An out-of-the-ordinary creative experience! Through the work of Steve Smith, the visitor will be transported to the height of the movement initiated by Pastor King, which went well beyond the fight against racial segregation. A journalist, human rights advocate and academic specialized in the civil rights movement, Steve Smith recently completed his master's thesis To end war and poverty: The media strategy of Martin Luther King, Jr. from January 1, 1967, to April 4, 1968. That work contains revolutionary analysis of the strategic use Dr. King made of the media during the last 16 months of his life – a period during which he sought to reach the most people possible in order to receive their support in his fight against war in Vietnam and poverty.»
