Please join us for the annual Gillet G. Griffin Memorial Lecture with Raina-Lampkins-Fielder, curator of the Souls Grown Deep Foundation, as well as a program officer of the Foundation's parent organization, the Souls Grown Deep Community Partnership, which supports the communities that gave rise to 160 artists represented in its collection.
"The mission of Souls Grown Deep is twofold," writes Lampkins-Fielder. "First, we have the foundation, established in 2010 to document, preserve, and promote the work of African-American artists from the southern states of the USA. Second, the Community Partnership Program, which focuses on supporting the communities that nurtured these artists, by fostering economic empowerment, racial and social justice, and educational advancement.
