In the Service of Others: Everyday People in Black & White
Held Sept. 16 - Oct. 31
Everyday, there are a myriad of hands helping to transform Duke. These hands nourish students, cut their hair, clean spaces, and build things. These hands are often invisible in the visible pursuit of higher education.
Returning from last year, The Beautiful. Project is a photographic exhibit featuring a variety of photos from young girls affiliated with the project showcasing the activity of participants and statements about their experiences during the program.
The Beautiful. Project is a program that uses photography and creative workshops to help black girls and young women investigate and celebrate how they define beauty and how beauty is defined for them. The program accepts a number of participants each year and includes a photo process (interviews, photo shoots focused on the little girls and their families, conducted by the undergraduate women), Saturday Studios (bi-weekly fun creative workshops for 9-12 year old girls to further investigate their definition of beauty), and a Health & Wellness track (professional and personal development workshops for undergraduate Black women participants).
