Event description


Marking the culmination of A Long Walk Home’s residency, this event will activate the Black Girlhood Altar in the Weinberg/Newton Gallery courtyard, one of four sites for a temporary monument to missing and murdered Black girls. Traveling back from its previous sites in Chicago, the altar will exist in the gallery’s courtyard as a symbol of collective placemaking for the sacred lives of Black girls. The event is free and open to the public, with guests invited to bring offerings for the altar.
