The annual Children’s March for Justice at Harlem’s Sugar Hill Museum becomes a virtual art exhibition this year opening at sugarhillmuseum.org on July 28, 2020. FREE
Children’s March for Justice
The Children’s March for Justice is a commemoration of the NAACP Silent Protest Parade of 1917. On that day ten thousand Black families and children marched in silence down Fifth Avenue for Equality and Social Justice.
That was more than 100 years ago. Think about that for a moment.
Children’s Art Exhibition for Justice
We can’t march this year because of the COVID-19 Pandemic. So to keep New Yorkers safe, 100 families and students age 3-8 are drawing, painting, photographing and collaging on the themes of Life in Quarantine and Social Justice.
Muralist Dionis Ortiz is guiding older children and teenagers of the Broadway Housing Communities are creating protest art on the them of Do the Right Thing.
To See the World Through the Eyes of a Child
To see the world in a grain of sand is to see the world through the eyes of a child.
Look at how the children of Harlem see the world. They see us all together. Everybody is included and we are all together.
Can you see the world through the eyes of a child?
