Join us for the 2019 Friend Lecture featuring Birmingham artist Celestia Morgan and a panel of local community activists in conversation about the historic, systematic practice of racial housing discrimination featured in Celestia Morgan: REDLINE, an exhibition of Morgan’s work at the Birmingham Museum of Art. Celestia Morgan was born in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1981 and continues to live and work locally. She earned her BFA in photography from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2012 and her MFA from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa in 2017. Morgan’s work is in the permanent collection of numerous museums including Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and the Birmingham Museum of Art.

The panel will include T. Marie King, community activist and educator; Richard Rice, attorney and community organizer; and Odessa Woolfolk, educator, public administrator, and civic activist. This event is free and open to the public.

The Edward M. Friend and Hermione Friend Lecture is a biennial lecture focusing on contemporary artists, critics, and historians.
