January 11, 2020 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Please join Don’t Shoot Portland and NW Noggin for a discussion on violence and brain development at the Community Partners in Residence Space in the Hank Willis Thomas Exhibition.

This program features live music with LaRhonda Steele, an award-winning vocalist and recording artist and Karen Haberman Trusty, a Harvard University graduate who worked as part of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in the 60s. They will be performing their new collaborative album, Spirit of Freedom.
