OF MANY COLORS: Portraits of Multiracial Families
OF MANY COLORS includes photographs and interviews with 20 families (children, teens, and adults) who have bridged the racial divide through interracial relationships and/or adoption. In a world where race is considered by many to be a formidable barrier between people, the families in this traveling exhibit have discovered richness and value in diversity. This exhibit of multiracial families has a great deal to teach about racial identity and racism.
Monday – Sunday from 12pm to 5pm – call 504-298-3161 before arrival.
Mixed Messages.4 and Of Many Colors are on view through July 1st.
MIXED MESSAGES.4 is presented in conjunction with the 4rd Annual New Orleans Loving Festival, a multiracial community celebration and film festival that challenges racism through outreach and education. For more information please visit lovingfestival.org or follow the New Orleans Loving Festival on Facebook. The New Orleans Loving Festival is an initiative of Charitable Film Network, a Louisiana state non-profit.
