University of Dayton Human Rights Center to Present Ferguson Voices Aet Exhibit Jan. 17-Feb. 3

The University of Dayton Human Rights Center and PROOF: Media for Social Justice will present "Ferguson Voices: Disrupting the Frame," a photo exhibit Jan. 17 to Feb. 3 in the Roesch Library First Floor Gallery on the University of Dayton campus. "Ferguson Voices" emerges from the work of the Moral Courage Project, a team of University of Dayton students and program coordinators who collected oral histories in Ferguson, Missouri, in May. "Featuring portraits and audio recordings, the exhibit illustrates the story of Ferguson by focusing on the contributions of average people who found the courage to stand up during moments of unrest," said Joel Pruce, University of Dayton assistant professor of human rights who oversaw the project. The exhibit and following events are open to the public: Opening reception, 4-6 p.m. Jan. 20 in the First Floor Gallery; P.S. I Can't Breathe documentary and screening, 6:30 p.m. Jan. 26 in the Roesch Library Collab; and an interactive program on responding to a crisis led by Leora Kahn, executive director of PROOF, 6:30 p.m. Jan. 31 in the Roesch Library Collab.
