Missing Stories of Oursevles Photo Exhibit

January 3-30, 2006

OUGL lobby, and second and third floor east display areas

A nationally touring exhibit of 50 framed, museum quality, color photographs coupled with narratives created by students who are welfare eligible, single parents changing their lives through the pathway of higher education. The installation presents a unique view of poverty from insiders’ perspectives and reframes the cultural (de)valuations of poor single parents vis-à-vis family, work and higher education in the United States today.


Plan to attend a public lecture on the exhibit, Reclaiming Our Stories: Poverty and the Promise of Higher Education.
Featuring Dr. Vivyan Adair, Director, ACCESS Project, Hamilton College, NY
