RESIST COVID / TAKE 6!
On view now through February 28, 2021
CARRIE MAE WEEMS SOCIAL STUDIES 101 PROJECT
We invite visitors to RESIST COVID / TAKE 6! to respond to this outdoor exhibition and public awareness campaign by artist Carrie Mae Weems. This artwork is both hopeful (“Don’t Worry, We’ll Hold Hands Again”) and forceful—especially in its reminder that COVID-19 is more lethal to communities of color.
The Center for Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation at Duke (Duke TRHT Center) is part of a national movement whose mission is to dismantle the belief in a hierarchy of human value based on race. The Duke TRHT Center will provide analysis and interpretation of visitor responses. Your voice will become part of the fabric of how our society thinks about COVID-19.
We invite you to speak your own truth. How have your life, your family, your hopes and fears transformed since the start of this global pandemic?
Thank you for sharing your story.
The health and safety of our community is our top priority. In accordance with Duke University, the museum is closed to visitors until further notice. The café and store are closed. Find updates and the latest information on Duke’s Coronavirus Response website.
