Lom Nava Love, 2/17
Where: Falvey Hall
The President's Task Force for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Globalization is hosting a great event on February 17th at 7 p.m. in Falvey. The evening has three parts to it--first, a screen of the film, Lom Nava Love, an unflinching story of Black families in inner city Baltimore harnessing their strengths to challenge the systems and institutions that often dictate their realities. Centered on the work of community organizer Shirley Foulks and directed by Youth Resiliency Institute founder Fanon Hill, Lom Nava Love documents Foulks’ engagement with families in public housing and how she uses art to communicate the abilities, strengths and power to effect change that Black families innately possess.
