Anika Lopes, founder of Ancestral Bridges and curator of the Ancestral Bridges exhibition in Frost Library, will talk about her research process, the development of the exhibition, and where she sees this work heading.  Lunch will be provided. RSVPs are appreciated for planning purposes:

Ancestral Bridges: Celebrating Black and Afro-Indigenous Families Who Lived and Worked in Amherst in the 18th Through Early 20th Centuries is an exhibit of historical photographs and artifacts, and is on view daily in Frost Library’s Mezzanine Gallery on the campus of Amherst College.

This exhibition, the first partnership between the Ancestral Bridges Foundation and Amherst College, seeks to center this long-neglected aspect of town history and to reveal the rich and complex lives of the Black and Afro-Indigenous community of Amherst.
