We Will March Forever
A Story of Youth Activism, Told by Youth Now Exhibition April 22 – June 30, 2022 We Will March Forever is an exhibition led by Arts @ Large Career Development Interns. The catalyst for this dynamic exhibition is the NAACP Youth Council and Commandos of the 1967-68 Open Housing movement. Through the disciplines of Podcasting, Business of Art, Youth Activism, and Digital Arts students respond to ideas that still resonate with them today from this remarkable time in history. We Will March Forever highlights the work this generation is doing to continue the legacy of those before them, while questioning what has changed and what racial/social justice issues continue to impact Milwaukee’s Black and Brown communities.
