We Carry Memories Inside of We

When: Thu., Sept. 1, 7 p.m. 2011

On Sept. 16-17, the College of Charleston’s Avery Research Center will host a two-day symposium honoring the 20th anniversary of Julie Dash’s Daughters of the Dust, featuring lectures, screenings, and more. The events are in celebration of the ground-breaking film about a turn-of-the-20th-century Gullah-Geechee family. As an early part of the commemorative weekend, the Avery did a call for entries for an art show titled We Carry These Memories Inside of We. The juried exhibition will open with a reception on Thursday, and its work is intended to pay homage to Daughters and to the Gullah-Geechee culture. It closes on Dec. 15.
