Introduction

In the face of oppression, building solidarity is vital. Moments of unity often get erased from public memory. It is necessary to tell the narratives of different marginalized communities coming together to defend their human rights, sovereignty, and dignity.

During the Fall of 2016, students from the seminar Race and Remembering studied examples of resistance and organizing across communities and throughout history. This digital exhibit aims to affirm strategies for creating positive social change and share them as tools for movement-building. Using the personal and institutional power and privilege we have at Brown University, we support and honor the hard labor of past, continuous, and emerging movements.

This exhibit emphasizes the ongoing importance of creating coalitions for the empowerment of marginalized peoples.
