Multi-Media Exhibition Talk at CWRU Focuses on the History of Segregated Sites in Cleveland

Imani Roach1

Tue 3/21 @ 6PM

Imani Roach will discuss Havens, her new exhibition at SPACES, at the Tinkham Veale University Center on CWRU campus. Havens is a multi-media exhibition of drawings and installations inspired by the Jim Crow-era travel guide known as the Negro Motorist Green Book.

The Green Book was an ever-evolving index of safe traveling destinations that black motorists could safely patronize during their travels, published from the 1930s through the 1960s. Havens explores the sites of Cleveland’s own long-gone and forgotten safe havens, and what they mean for today, as well as how artists can use their work to make statements about social change, in a discussion with MOCA Cleveland’s curator of public programs Diedre McPherson. A light dessert reception will follow.

It’s free. RSVP at
