Member Ellen Spindler will share her journey with us through African-American art and history, based on museums and historic sites she has visited. She will discuss themes presented in some of the artworks relating to African-American history, racial, gender and cultural identity, non-Western forms and aesthetics, and the role of art in challenging stereotypes. Ellen is a former Board member of the Riverdale-Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture and is currently a volunteer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Historic House Trust of NYC. Music by Lindsey Wilson.
