Art AfterWords: A Book Discussion

About this event

The National Portrait Gallery and the DC Public Library would like to invite you to a virtual conversation about public remembrance and the history of Washington, D.C. Join us as we analyze a portrait of Malcolm X, and discuss the related book, The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Alex Haley.

We will be joined by the Portrait Gallery’s Curator of Photographs Leslie Ureña, and our Instagram Artist-in-Residence, Bradford Grant, as they discuss the exhibition, Block by Block: Naming Washington, which explores the nomenclature of the city's spaces.

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.

In order to register and participate in this program, you must be 18 or older, or be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
