What a concept. We are making our voices heard. For those who would like to bring their art, their poems, their presence and voices--come Sunday, April 1st to The University Museum at Texas Southern University. We need a diverse group to get together, tape our work. This is the last day of 1000 Words | 1000 Kalema Exhibition where a picture is worth is thousand words. Whoever shall share their narratives can tell a story that will reverberate for 7 generations. Go, Go, Go! Gracias. Palabras! Words! Kalema! Words!
