Listening Booths - Saturday, June 27th from 2-5PM on The Mary C Front Lawn @ The Mary C Front Lawn
Introducing ‘Listening Booths’ by the 100 WOMEN DBA, a program housed under the 100 Men Hall in collaboration with The Mary C and the Walter Anderson Museum of Art – and kick-off to our upcoming programming ‘The People’s History Project’! On Saturday, June 27th from 2-5PM, we will have SIX listening booths outside on the The Mary C lawn for members of the community to express themselves about the recent killing of African Americans across the country.
 
Each booth will be a six-foot table with a listener wearing a mask on one end and a chair for a person to social distance and express their emotions in response to the recent disturbing deaths. The listeners will actively listen, by being present and not interrupting the speaker.
 
The 100 WOMEN DBA is a non-profit operating under the 100 Men Hall seeking to levy the members collective privileges and blessings to level the playing field for under-represented women to empower and support them in their business endeavors. The 100 Men Hall, a 501c3, is a rare African American landmark and one of the few standing buildings on the MS Blues Trail.
 
We are incredibly excited and proud to host this phenomenal group and their efforts. Please feel free to observe while social distancing of course!
