About this Event

The National Portrait Gallery and the DC Public Library would like to invite you to a virtual conversation about representation, kinship, and storytelling. Join us as we analyze Bernard Gotfryd’s portrait of Alice Walker and discuss the related book, Training School for Negro Girls by Camille Acker.

DCPL Cardholders! You can access “Training School for Negro Girls” here: Training school for Negro girls / Camille Acker.

The Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants 24- 48 hours in advance of the program. The email will come from Eventbrite. Please only register for yourself. We will only be allowing participants into the meeting if their name (and email address) is on the registration list.

The Portrait Gallery strives to provide programs that are accessible to all visitors. For questions, or to request accommodations such as captioning, please email JonesVE@si.edu at least two weeks in advance of the program.
