To those of you I haven’t met, my name is Anjali Rodrigues and I have had the pleasure of working with a fantastic group of students this semester in Humanities 2 at Boston Arts Academy. On behalf of our class, we’d like to invite you to a special event on Wednesday, May 31: our Exhibition! Students will be leading a community forum based on action research projects they have been conducting for the past six weeks.

At the forum, students will share their findings from their research through artistic products and presentations, and will facilitate a discussion with the audience afterwards. At this critical time in our nation’s history, I believe it is urgent to listen to our young people and to engage in dialogue. In past Exhibition events, we have had intergenerational dialogue about everything from relationships between the community and the police, to the importance of knowing your history and your roots, to the impact of social media on our minds and bodies.

We hope you can join us and share your thoughts and your voice in support of our young people!
