Art is a helpful tool to process and understand this history and its legacies. We are always looking for ways to engage local artists in this process as a way to interpret and understand what it means for our community to reckon with its history and advocate for advances in social justice.
We’re excited to be celebrating the fourth annual presentation of The Green Book Project, a collaboration between Bush Hills STEAM Academy, the Greater Birmingham Arts Education Collaborative, The Birmingham Museum of Art, and the Jefferson County Memorial Project with support from the Alabama State Council for The Arts. This program, aimed at teaching our community’s talented youth about empathy and advocacy through learning about The Green Book, enables us to accomplish our mission of educating young leaders in our community.
Together, we’re engaging the talented youth in our community to teach history through the arts.
