The 2014 social unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, drew international attention and ignited a modern movement for civil and cultural rights in Saint Louis and nationwide. Museum curators and artists who have responded to Ferguson will discuss the processes, value judgments, challenges, and responsibilities of creating and collecting art and artifacts related to this still-burgeoning movement. Moderated by artist-activist De Nichols, the panel will include Chris Gordon, director, library and collections, Missouri History Museum; Kevin Strait, museum specialist, Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture; and Desiree Jones, project coordinator, Documenting the Now, Washington University.
