National Day of Racial Healing, Community Week, and Teen Summit
January 16 2024
Hosted By: Explora Science Museum
The week will begin on Tuesday, January 16, 2024 with a speech by the Mayor and some local performances by Flamenco dancers and other Albuquerque artists.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, January 17th and 18th, Explora will host field trips for local Minority Student Unions. During the entire month of January, the museum exhibits will be embellished with Biographies and pictures of minority scientists who discovered, invented, or re-defined our knowledge of the exhibit in front of us. The entire city will be able to learn about our true shared history, and acknowledge (and thank!) those who have historically been ignored and overlooked in scientific fields. Also at the museum, you'll find local artists and artisans creating and sharing their art in a variety of forms; including protest art, screen-printing, muralism, and storytelling.
On Sunday, January 21st, we will conclude the week with a Teen Summit, where Albuquerque Teens will gather to connect, discuss, and grow together.
