Embracing Arlington Arts Talks

Dec 24, 2019

Virginia Humanities Board Member Mark Habeeb and Project Advisor Mary Hynes gave a very interesting interview about a grant given to Arlington from the Kellogg Foundation entitled "Changing the Narrative on Racism." Several projects were included in this grant including making cigar box instruments and middle school students creating new lyrics to traditional Piedmont blues songs reflecting what they learned about Arlington's history. Also discussed was a recent theater production presented by high school students, as well as what they both found surprising about the County's racial history.
