The Ties That Bind / Fellow artist

I recently had my work included in an exhibition, The Ties That Bind, at the Johns Hopkins University's School for Advanced International Studies in Washington DC, curated by Shamila Chaudhary.

I am grateful to have my work included in such a fine, meaningful program in celebration of Back History Month. A selection of my work documenting the Singing and Praying Bands on the Eastern Shore is on display.

I met several of the other artists in the show, including Sheila Crider, whose portrait I made in front of her work.

Operation Understanding DC Class 24, caucus session

Class 24 of Operation Understanding DC began their year of learning together this weekend. Workshops were held at Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ in Northeast Washington DC.

The mission of OUDC "is to build a generation of African American and Jewish community leaders who promote respect, understanding and cooperation while working to eradicate racism, anti-Semitism and all forms of discrimination."

Every strength to all of these young people in their efforts.

OUDC Class 23 graduation

Class 23 of Operation Understanding DC finished their year-long voyage of learning this past weekend.

May they build upon their experiences together as they move into the next stages of their lives.

Thanks also to all these fine young people, to their parents, the board, and to Ricki Horne, Emmy Cohen, and Executive Director Yolanda Savage-Narva for the award I was given for 24 years of volunteer service to the organization. Much obliged, and glad to help.
