ECS Hosts Third Community Dinner With Special Guest Vashti DuBois

ECS recently hosted the third installment of our Seat at the Table Community Dinner series. In celebration of Women’s History Month, we welcomed special guest Vashti DuBois, Founder and Executive Director of The Colored Girls Museum.IMG_0016 DuBois spoke on the importance of recognizing the extraordinary lives led by ordinary Black women and girls.  

DuBois led the audience through the history of The Colored Girls Museum and its importance in her life. She invited everyone in the room to think critically about whose stories are told in museum spaces and how we might broaden that palette.  

The evening culminated in an activity wherein DuBois asked participants to identify an object on their person that was significant to them. Then, she invited everyone to create their own miniature installation on their tables which told the story of their collective objects. Attendees went around to the various tables, asking questions about objects and learning more about each other.
