You will be added to our mailing list and scheduled for an in-person or phone interview. When our training sessions begin, you will be contacted and matched with an event that fits your skill set.
This year we focused on the history of hip hop music and graffiti. We were fortunate to get Tahir Hemphill and David. M. A. Goldberg of Rap Research Lab to lead our workshops. The students' colorful graphic data posters mirror our most recent exhibition on view, featuring the work of sociologist and civil rights activist W.E.B. Du Bois when he presented the American Negro Exhibit and his data visualizations at the 1900 Paris Exposition.
Take a journey back over 100 years ago to the turn of the 20th century as sociologist and civil rights activist W.E.B. Du Bois presented the American Negro Exhibit and his data visualizations at the 1900 Paris Exposition. Outlines of Color is an 8-part series featuring accounts by scholars, authors, and experts of Du Bois who reflect on the impact of the drawings and how Du Bois used data to illustrate and debunk scientific racism at the time.
