The Landfill Fashionista exhibit, a project of the Staten Island Urban Center, calls for environmental justice, changing the narrative about what is disposable, contaminated, or ugly, and transforming it into the beauty that communicates hope and power. Alkebulan Consciousness Rising is a cultural education organization spreading awareness of Black history, ancestry, and traditions. The Afro American Historical Genealogical Society is a nonprofit organization made up of historians and educators seeking to enrich knowledge and understanding of Staten Island’s Black history.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, attendance is limited. Please register in advance. Please wear a mask. Sanitizer, wipes, and latex gloves will be made available. All COVID regulations and social distancing will be followed.
