Event description
THIS EXHIBIT HONORS INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE DIED AT THE HANDS OF THOSE PERPETRATING INJUSTICE AND SYSTEMATIC RACISM

About this event

This grassroots exhibit had its start in Portland, Oregon and is an outgrowth of the protest that took place nationwide in 2020. The informal outcry is now an organization called the "Say Their Names Memorial". It is the goal of the organization to make sure that we never forget the victims, and that we are able to place a name with a face. In San Diego, our exhibit will also recognize local Civil Rights advocates who have worked to level the playing field. The "Say Their Names" exhibit has been shown in over 25 cities. This is the first exhibition south of Los Angeles County.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

The “Say Their Name Memorial” team manages an ongoing, submission driven database that includes names, photographs and biographies of victims. They produce traveling memorials for public exhibition as well as provide support for communities interested in creating grassroots memorials of their own. Their goal is to facilitate conversation around systemic racism, while honoring those whose lives have been taken by it.
