The Withers Collection is delighted to team with ASALH (Association for the Study of African American Life and History) and the Afro American Historical & Genealogical Society - Memphis Chapter to recall the 400 Years of trials and to celebrate the triumphs of African Americans in the U.S. on August 27, 2019, at Talk About It Tuesday. Confirmed panelists for the forum are Dr. Andre E. Johnson, Professor of Rhetoric and Media Studies at the University of Memphis; Ms. Teresa Mays, President of the Afro American Genealogical Society; and Mr. John Ashworth, Executive Director of the Memphis Lynching Sites Project (LSP).
The goal of the gallery is to bring people from the local community together to give them inspiration for what their non-profit organization is hoping to achieve through education and engagement. They want to promote discussion about the significant impact of cultural history in movements for economic and social justice. They are committed to raising history awareness, which they hope will also raise funds and donations that can contribute to future exhibits from the archive of more than 1.8 million images of the iconic internationally renowned photographer Dr. Ernest C. Withers.
Talk About It Tuesday will be held Tuesday, August 27, 2019, from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM.
There is no charge for attending the event and registration can be made online at
