In Our Shoes by Debbie Officer and June Gaddy

This December marks the 51st anniversary of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, and the start of the modern day civil rights movement. Through the exhibition, "In Our Shoes", artists Debbie Officer and June Gaddy celebrate the many men and women who came together to fight for their rights as equal citizens in Montgomery, Alabama, and whose courage and determination changed America. Employing a variety of mixed media techniques, the artists hope to bring attention to the power of ordinary citizens to imagine and enact their own freedom and equality.

This exhibition is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council, Inc. (BAC).
